What is ATP?
The Academically Talented Program at Carlisle Schools is a collection of services provided to students who
have been identified as gifted in the area of superior cognitive or the specific academic areas of reading, language,
math, social studies, or science. Service varies by grade level and area of identification.
How are students selected for gifted services in Carlisle?
Students can be referred by parents, teachers, or district testing information. Parents are then contacted for
permission to conduct further testing using the state of Ohio's approved tests adopted by our local district.
Students are tested and parents are informed of the testing results. If the student meets state requirements, a
written gifted service plan will be devised. For more information on the characteristics of children who are gifted
access Who Are the Gifted.

What do gifted service options provide for Carlisle students?
Students participating in gifted service options are presented with a variety of educational opportunities. The
goal of the service options is to provide a wide range of high level thinking activities that encourage students to
increase their ability to solve problems, discover individual interests, pursue in-depth study, and set goals for the
these sites to explore the opportunities ATP has to offer!
