Gifted Support

  • In keeping with the District’s Mission to nurture each child through a wealth of academic endeavors and community partnerships, our Vision to strive for excellence, and the charge of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the School District of Cheltenham Township provides, without cost to parents, screenings and evaluations of all students thought to be eligible for gifted services under Chapter 16 of the Pennsylvania School Code, and appropriate programs and services to all students identified as gifted who are in need of specially designed instruction. For information

    For information about current activities, events, tips, and suggestions in the Challenge Program, contact your Challenge Consultant. 

If you believe your child may be eligible

  • If you suspect that your school-age child is gifted, you may request a screening by submitting a dated written request to the building principal, indicating the reason for the request.
