Advanced Academics Programs (AAP)
Fairfax County Public Schools offers a continuum of advanced academic services for students K-12 that builds upon students' individual strengths and skills and maximizes academic potential for all learners.
Our Keene Mill Advanced Academic resource teacher (AART) collaborates with the school staff to determine the appropriate level of advanced academic services. Parents may refer their child for advanced academic services or get additional information on the screening process or advanced academic opportunities at Keene Mill by contacting the AART. Ongoing observation and assessment ensures that student needs are being met.
Keene Mill is an Advanced Academic Level IV Center providing full-time Level IV services to Keene Mill students as well as students from several neighboring elementary schools. In addition to the AAP Level IV Center, all Keene Mill students are taught critical thinking skills and strategies. Advanced Academic School-based part-time Level II and Level III services are provided for identified students.
