Helping students learn and grow is a goal of every school district. The mission of the Gifted Department of the South Central Ohio Educational Service Center (SCOESC) is to provide students in our local school districts the opportunity to take part in academically and artistically challenging programs, which the schools may not be able to offer individually. We work hard to provide students with high quality programs in both academics and fine arts in order to help them become successful both in the classroom and in life. Even though our department is labeled “Gifted Services," we are proud of our outreach to students throughout the Scioto County area; even those who are not necessarily identified as “gifted."
The only program we offer that is restricted to students identified as gifted is our Summer Enrichment Scholarship Program; all of our other programs are open to all students who attend schools that are members of the SCOESC.
We are proud of all the students who have embraced our programs and pursued them as an opportunity for personal growth on their own paths to success!
