Secondary Education


AIG students perform or show the potential to perform at substantially high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experiences or environment. These students require differentiated educational services beyond those ordinarily provided by the regular educational program. Please contact your school’s AIG Specialist or the AIG Coordinator if you have questions about our program.

The program provides a structure for selecting careers based on linking what a student knows about him/herself with information about occupations and typical training requirements.
