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.
