ASPIRE Academy

Advancing Scholars in the Pursuit of Innovation, Real world connections, and Excellence in education.

Glenhope is pleased to house the ASPIRE Academy for the Highly Gifted for grades 1-5. The ASPIRE Academy curriculum aligns with NAGC standards and fulfills the standards outlined by the Texas State Plan for Gifted Education.  The Depth and Complexity Framework is utilized to deepen students' learning in core content areas.  

ASPIRE Academy students learn the importance of goal setting and use data to track accomplishments and help set new goals. Scholars also learn about the characteristics that are typical in highly gifted learners. Over time, they learn how to capitalize on their strengths and to overcome challenges that may come with their unique learning needs.
