Mission Statement

The mission of the Souderton Area PAGE is to promote a positive environment to allow gifted students to reach their highest potential, to serve as a resource for families and educators of these students, thereby raising the level of educational excellence of the Souderton Area School District community.

"Pennsylvania is one of the few states which have chosen to place the educational needs of the gifted child under the protection of the Special Education Laws of the Commonwealth. This was done in recognition of the fact that highly gifted youngsters are not always appropriately served in a regular classroom setting. This legal framework helps to ensure that this special group of PA students has access to an appropriate education. However, the full implementation of the law for any individual child is always dependent upon the advocacy of the parent working in partnership with the school district and the child's teachers."
