Students selected to enter into the Gifted and Talented Program in Year 7 remain together as a class until the end of Year 9.
The program differs substantially from our mainstream program with a clear focus on maximising the academic potential of each student.
When students from the Gifted and Talented Program graduate to the senior school they have developed the foundations to ensure that they gain maximum ATAR scores to increase their opportunities for tertiary study.
Various opportunities will be open to students in the senior school. These include early access to VCE units, extra units at VCE level and tertiary enhancement studies.
