Western Academic Talent Search (WATS)

Western Academic Talent Search (WATS)

WATS participants take the SAT, ACT or PSAT 8/9 examinations to evaluate their strengths, to gain experience and directly increase scores, and to qualify for recognition and special programming. All participants receive a participation certificate, score interpretation information, and access to a summer opportunities guide. High-scoring students testing between October and March are invited to a regional WATS Recognition Ceremony.

This is open to all identified gifted students in Grades 3-9.

See this 1 page information sheet  or the WATS webpage for more information.

Families needing verification of GT eligibility, contact gtinform@jeffco.k12.co.us and we will send a letter indicating your child’s gifted identification status.

Families may also be interested in exploring the fantastic summer enrichment programs offered by the Center for Bright Kids (CBK), which sponsors WATS testing.
