Welcome to the Gifted Education course section. The Kindergarten through twelfth grade courses listed are options for students identified as gifted who have an Educational Plan (EP). EPs are developed for students whose only identified exceptionality is gifted. See Rule 6A-6.03019, F.A.C for more information.
Every district has a listing of the particular courses that they offer. The courses listed in this tab are not the only courses that gifted students may select during their K-12 matriculation. All courses that meet the goals and objectives determined on the student’s EP are suitable, including general education courses. Most of the courses listed on this page are open to K-12 general education students as well.
The rigor included in each advanced course is monitored by the program itself and the EP. Through the application, analysis, evaluation, and creation of complex ideas that are often abstract and multi-faceted, students are challenged to think and collaborate critically on the content they are learning.
To see a current listing of all of the courses offered across the state for grades 9-12 please visit http://www.fldoe.org/policy/articulation/ccd/ and select the current year from the left hand tabs.

Each district has a listing of the particular courses that they offer. Courses that meet the goals and objectives determined on the student’s EP are appropriate for gifted students, including general education courses. Gifted courses are available, but gifted students are not required to enroll in them. The rigor included in each course is monitored by the program itself and the EP. Please contact your school’s guidance counselor with any questions or concerns.
The Credit Acceleration Program (CAP) allows for a student to earn high school credit in courses required for high school graduation through the passage of an End of Course (EOC), Advanced Placement (AP) or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exam. If a student attains a passing score on an EOC, AP, or CLEP, then the school district is required to award course credit to the student who is not enrolled or who has not completed the course. Course numbers are included in the CCD for students who take and pass a CLEP.
Dual enrollment is an acceleration program that allows secondary students, including home education students and students with disabilities, to take postsecondary coursework and simultaneously earn credit toward a high school diploma, a career certificate, an industry certification, or an associate or baccalaureate degree at a Florida public or eligible private institution. For more information, please visit http://www.fldoe.org/policy/articulation/dual-enrollment-agreements.stml and contact your school’s guidance counselor.
