Referrals for testing for participation in the Ridgefield  School District’s Highly Capable Program for  the 2024-25 school year are currently being accepted. Anyone may refer a student including  parents, teachers, other students, and members of the community. Highly Capable Program  services are designed to address the needs of highly capable students in grades K-12. Your school  has copies of the “K-12 Highly Capable Program Overview” explaining the program goals,  identification process, service model and the schedule for testing. Referral forms are available online by clicking this link.

Students in grades 1 through 7 will be tested in March/April for possible placement in the  upcoming school year. Kindergarten students will be tested in April. Once your student has been  scheduled, the date will not be rescheduled except for a true family emergency or illness. 

Referrals  must be returned no later than February 2, 2024. You may email the referral form to or mail to:
