Summary

The paper examines the problem of highly gifted junior high school students who are intellectually ready for college-level study before beginning high school. The term radical accelerates is used to describe gifted students who jump from junior high to college education, bypassing the high school years. Briefly described are two widely known and successful radical accelerates, Norbert Wiener and Charles Fefferman. Presented in greater detail are case histories of two boys who are current radical accelerates. Methods used by the authors in seeking out mathematically and scientifically precocious students of junior high school age are explained. Possible disruptive effects of academic acceleration are considered, with particular reference to social and emotional development. Previous literature on acceleration is referred to, although little study has been done on radical acceleration. Radical acceleration is seen as the method of choice for some, but not all, extremely able students; alternate possibilities are also mentioned. (KW)
