Office of Gifted Services and Talent Development


The mission of the Xenia Community Schools' Office of Gifted Services and Talent Development is to expose students to a variety of rigorous educational opportunities designed to encourage the development of the gifted student's  intellectual, social, creative, and emotional growth.


Thank you for visiting the Xenia Community Schools Office of Gifted Services and Talent Development's web page. The administration and Board of Education of Xenia Community Schools has been committed to providing a variety of educational opportunities for the gifted students of our community for nearly 30 years. We are proud to have such a dedicated staff working with our gifted learners in a number of service settings. For the 2015-2016 school year, there are several changes taking place as we are hiring additional staff members to serve gifted students. We are also making necessary changes to our service plan that accommodate the academic needs of our gifted population in grades K-12. More information is forthcoming; in the meantime, please try to be patient with us as we work through this transitional time.
