And probably a whole lot more. Seems like names changed over time or varied perhaps from district to district. Frequent name changing is such a confidence booster. :P This list was just from this thread. Looking at the names of the programs are kind of interesting considering all that we have uncovered in the last few weeks. If I remember the way that the federal laws worked in regards to the establishment of gifted programs, I believe that all the states were mandated to identify them and only received some nominal additional funding if they developed a program for those students. Something along those lines.

It's also something that is definitely international. The list here, as far as the US goes, doesn't seem to be inclusive of a whole lot:
