Central Gaither has an active GATE program. Students are initially identified in third grade or as referred for testing in grades fourth through eighth. The process of identification is outlined in the YCUSD Gate Plan. Students identified receive a more rigorous academic program during the school day based on their gifted areas. Due to the current economic situation we are unable to provide GATE enrichment opportunities beyond the school day. We do include enrichment opportunities during our Club CG After School Program that are directed toward specific areas of giftedness.
