LAgniappe Academic Enrichment Program: Future Innovators Unite Program (Grades 7-10)

Thank you to everyone who is participating in our LAgniappe Academic Enrichment Program, Future Innovators Unite!

These Future Innovators are busy working together to come up with innovative ideas to meet their team challenges. 

Our Spring 2023 Screening Window is now closed for new participants seeking mandatory qualification for admission to our Summer Programs. 


Returning Students

Students previously accepted into the Center for Gifted Education programs have the status of Returning students.

There will be a class fee per student.

New Students

Students must qualify for admission to the Center for Gifted Education’s Summer Programs.

Beginning in Fall 2018 ALL new students seeking to participate in the Center for Gifted Education’s Summer Programs must submit a one-time $25.00 non-refundable application fee. Upon submission of the application fee the parent will receive the parent checklist and we will send the teacher checklist to the teacher listed in the application. The application fee will cover the review of the parent, and teacher checklist.

After review of the checklists all non-identified students who are going to move into the score review phase will also pay a one-time $25.00 Score Review fee.

Older students (5th grade and above) who are in NOT in a Parish GT Program will require a score review to determine admission.

New students who are in a Parish GT Program must submit a one-time, non-refundable, $25.00 application fee. Students must also submit the 1st page of their most recent IEP, or the Welcome letter from the Gifted and Talented Program. GT Program students do not need to submit scores for review.
