The A.N.T. (Advanced Natural Talents) program, is an educational program at Webster High School where adolescents who are naturally talented in a specific area are promoted from middle school to high school. This program brought Chyna, Olive, and Fletcher together in the TransplANTed. The "A.N.T.s" (as they are called by the rest of Webster High) have to get used to being 11 year old high-schoolers. This program was introduced in the pilot episode, TransplANTed.

In the A.N.T. program, students are given all of the equipment and opportunities that they need in order to fully develop their talents, while still attending rudimentary classes at the high school. They are allowed to stay in the central room of the A.N.T. program in between classes, at lunch, and after school.

The A.N.T.s are usually disliked by the others students, especially Lexi and the cheerleaders. Cameron usually dislikes them, too, but has grown to like them. Paisley, however, has no problems with the A.N.T.s and encourages Chyna to join cheerleaders because she is talented.

Some students are possibly allowed to skip classes, as they do not pertain to the A.N.T.'s skills, or the A.N.T. in question may know more than the course material can provide.

In The PhANTom Locker, Principal Skidmore states that the whole point of the A.N.T. program is to allow her to exploit the A.N.T.s' advanced natural talents for her own benefit. In SciANTs Fair, things seem as though she gives the A.N.T.s good grades that they do not deserved so that they can compete in Art Shows (Fletcher), Musical Recitals (Chyna), and Scholastic Decathlons and Spelling Bees (Olive). She says that she is planning to take a swimming champion from Japan to compete for their school in swim meets, even though he is unable to speak English.

It appears that each A.N.T. has a sort of "station" where they can hone their talents. Chyna has a place to play music, Olive has a place to read, Fletcher has an easel, Angus has a computer, Benny has a table to build robots, and Svetlana has a pommel horse to practice gymnastics on.

Apart from Chyna, Olive, Fletcher, Angus, Benny, and Svetlanta, there are several unintroduced A.N.T.s, most notably a male A.N.T. who is often seen on his stationary bicycle, lifting weights, or doing lunges. There are several female A.N.T.s who are occasionally seen doing homework, especially a ballet A.N.T. who was dancing across the room when Chyna first arrived in the A.N.T. Farm.

At one point, there was an A.N.T. named Emma. What her talent was is a mystery. According to Olive, she went to retrieve her lunch from her locker during lunch period, and was swept away by older and larger students and presumably suffered fatal injuries, much like Angus. Now, nobody (except for Olive, of course) can even remember her, or they have sworn never to speak of it.
