Advanced Academics Program (AAP)

Continuum of Advanced Academic Services in FCPS

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) offers a continuum of advanced academic services for all students in Grades K-8. Learning experiences are designed to develop higher-level thinking through enrichment, acceleration, and extension of the Program of Studies (POS). Teachers, administrators, and Advanced Academic Resource Teachers (AARTs) work together to provide four levels of services. Additional information can be found at FCPS AAP.
