The Western Academic Talent Search is an academic talent search program based on above-level testing and optimal match for students in 3rd-9th grade. Since many bright young students achieve above grade level, the talent search may more accurately measure their abilities than traditional in-grade achievement tests. The SAT, ACT, and EXPLORE tests provide a higher ceiling and valuable assessment information for young academically talented students. Taking these tests also provides students with early experience in taking college entrance-type tests. Students who have participated over the years report increased comfort with standardized testing and significant score gains based upon Talent Search experiences. For more information please go to the above link.
The Center for Bright Kids in Denver/ Boulder also coordinates scholarships for “exceptionally promising middle school students whose families have financial need.”
