Columbus Gifted Academy is on the Move
The Columbus Gifted Academy will have a new home for the 2017-2018 school year! The program, currently located on Beck St. near German Village will be relocating to the Everett building (former Fifth Avenue International School) in the Short North. This building will provide more space to accommodate the growing demand for this program for students in grades 3 through 8. Parents of current CGA scholars can have their questions answered at the next PTO meeting. Information about CGA and other gifted services in the district will be sent to eligible students at the end of February and families can hear more at a series of parent meetings to be held March 15 at 6pm at East HS, March 15 at 11:30am at Linmoor Annex, and March 16 at 6pm at Northland HS.
