Fairfax County Association for the Gifted

Building a community of advocates for gifted children and
connecting the people and programs that support them.


The Fairfax County Association for the Gifted (FCAG), is a non-governmental, non-profit organization of parent and student volunteers that supports educational programs for advanced academic students. FCAG's primary activity is advocacy for gifted students. In addition to advocacy, FCAG hosts meetings with distinguished speakers that are free and open to the public, sponsors math contests such as the AMC 8 and AMC 10, and annually hosts a Summer Academic Programs and Enrichment Camp Fair. FCAG also publishes newsletters and hosts a free, online, interactive Yahoo discussion group with over 2000 participants. You do not need to be a resident of Fairfax County to join the organization.

Join FCAG to support these efforts!
