Which students should be referred for Highly Capable Program (HCP) services? Highly capable students are students who perform or show potential for performing at significantly advanced academic levels when compared with others of their age, experiences, or environments (WAC 392-170-035). A student who is highly capable might possess a number of learning characteristics, some of which are: (1) Capacity to learn with unusual depth of understanding, to retain what has been learned, and to transfer learning to new situations. (2) Capacity and willingness to deal with increasing levels of abstraction and complexity earlier than their chronological peers. (3) Creative ability to make unusual connections among ideas and concepts. (4) Ability to learn quickly in their area(s) of intellectual strength. (5) Capacity for intense concentration and/or focus.

Referral forms and more information can be found on the Highly Capable Services Pages
