Our curriculum provides for the mandated Australian Curriculum in:
Programs of Excellence
NEXUS is our Math, Science, Technology and Engineering excellence program.
Programs of Excellence cater to Junior secondary (years 7, 8 and 9) students recognising that children have particular aptitudes and talents and our curriculum pathways provide for these.
Being an Academy student in one or more Program of Excellence requires a student applicant to demonstrate a particular aptitude for an area of deep interest. Students may enter more than one Program with fees capped.
Students in Instrumental Music Program will have automatic entry with subsequent Academy fees being covered by existing costs to parents covering instrument hire, sheet music, extra tuition and other limited program resources.
All Academy Programs of Excellence require the highest standards of commitment to our school's Enrolment Agreement and participation in the school's Student Resource Scheme.
Academic Honours Program requires the student applicant to sit entry screening tests and have a suitable academic record.
Maintaining a place in the
sports academy requires demonstrating aptitude in the program of interest, maintaining C or above results in all subjects and have met or exceeded minimum literacy and numeracy benchmarks.
Term reviews and parent conferences are conducted each term by the Deputy Principal (Junior secondary) based on advice and reports from Program Directors. Students are required to maintain these standards.
