Academic Extension Program

The Academic Extension Program offers high achieving students in Years 7-9, dedicated classes that support them as they pursue greater depth and breadth in their key learning areas and aspire to excellence.

Academic extension classes offer a faster pace of study to enable students to focus on extending, refining, and using knowledge meaningfully through the development of higher order thinking skills.

While all students require challenges, students in the Academic Extension Program work with like-minded peers and access extension activities that unpack the Australian Curriculum at a more sophisticated level.

Within the classroom context, students are encouraged in their creative and divergent thinking and take part in complex individual and collaborative problem solving.

The Academic Extension Program acknowledges the need for differentiated curriculum and learning opportunities for high-achieving students and provides a positive, challenging, and supportive classroom environment in order to achieve this.​
