Who should apply?

Students who have been identified as Gifted or High Potential Learners. Your student must be identified as gifted or high potential before applications are due on January  6, 2017 in order to apply. Students applying for Kindergarten will be tested at Aurora Quest to determine eligibility for admission.

  • Parents of APS students interested in applying to Quest must notify their school’s AGATE Leader by October 21, 2016, so the testing and identification process can be completed before applications are due.
  • Parents of APS students attending non-traditional schools such as charter or private schools, students being home schooled, or out of district students will need to attend the parent information night to learn more about testing requirements 

Tips for filling out an Aurora Quest K-8 Application:

  • Download the grade level application for which your child is applying for the 2017-18 school year.
  • Give the Teacher Recommendation and AGATE Teacher Leader form (for APS students applying for 1st through 8th grades) to your child's teacher by October 21, 2016.  **If your child does not currently attend an APS school you will not need the AGATE Teacher Leader form.
  • For children applying for Kindergarten, there is no Agate Teacher Leader Form.
  • For children applying for Kindergarten, the Teacher Recommendation can be given to your child’s pre-school teacher, Sunday school teacher, etc.
  • PLEASE KEEP the application and parent piece for you to turn into Quest. Do not give your part to your child’s teacher and only give the Teacher Recommendation and AGATE Teacher Leader form to your child’s school.
  • Do not ask your child’s teacher for the completed Teacher Recommendation or AGATE Teacher Leader Form of the application. They will send it to Quest separately.
  • Fill out your child’s application as thoroughly as possible.
  • Applications must include a self-addressed, stamped envelope in order to mail you your child’s acceptance status.  If you change addresses before the end of March, please notify our office.
