Academic programs

Academic programs

Children with exceptional academic ability will have the opportunity to engage in a learning environment that is intellectually stimulating and rigorous.

Offered at fourteen public secondary metropolitan schools, two regional schools and online, children foster advanced analytical, critical and creative thinking skills. They follow a program that matches individual learning needs and accelerates learning by extending their skills with advanced and in-depth study.

A key feature of these programs is the extension and extracurricular activities where children can be involved in international, national and state competitions, leadership programs, community service, university extension programs and study tours.

Selection into these programs is based on the results of the Academic Selective Entrance Test (ASET).
