Gifted Enrichment Seminar (offered at all four high schools)
Requires students to be eligible for gifted education academic services.

In addition to the college and career academies, Hampton City Schools offers a differentiated option of cluster grouping for gifted high school students in grades nine and ten. This model offers students access to in-depth learning of curriculum content with time to go into greater depth and/or breadth on a given topic. Teachers offer curriculum compacting and differentiated learning opportunities. The smaller learning community consists of teachers in three core subject areas, English, science, and the social sciences. Gifted cluster courses require a minimum enrollment of 20 students. Students take a four-year sequence of courses that prepare them to be competitive at any college or university of their choice. Beyond the core subject areas, gifted students have wide and varied interests. They are then able to choose not only gifted seminar courses, but also any career pathway that is offered in the high school. The cluster grouping prepares them for the intellectual challenge in their futures; selecting a pathway in the high schools allows students to prepare for their careers. Therefore, students fulfill the core requirements of the gifted enrichment seminar and a career pathway.
