Highly Capable Programs
Highly Capable Program Services (also known as HiCap) are designed for students who: 1) are academically advanced, and 2) demonstrate high intellectual capability.
Students receiving highly capable services are often independent learners who thrive on progressively challenging opportunities and utilize advanced problem-solving, in-depth study and presentation of curriculum matched to their demonstrated skills and capabilities.
Students receiving highly capable program services through the Challenge Program, Earned Honors or a Highly Capable Learning Plan practice progressively higher-level thinking skills such as synthesis, analysis, creativity, inference, and evaluation. Within a given classroom or setting, students may demonstrate a varied level of advancement relative to reading, math and written language.
The goal of Highline's Highly Capable Program is to provide opportunities for students to achieve a greater depth of knowledge, and in some cases, to accelerate their learning, to reach their full potential as scholars. We strive to provide services that meet each student's needs and capabilities and help students cultivate habits of learning that will contribute to student success in school, college, career and life.
