Academic Extension Program

The Academic Extension Program provides selected gifted students with learning opportunities that provide intellectual challenge to excel academically and fosters the development of positive attitudes to cooperate constructively, which ensure our school values are enacted. Each learning area provides extracurricular extension activities in each year group.

The AEP has two streams:
• Maths / Science
• Humanities and Social Sciences / English.

Students may participate in one or both streams. Each stream has one or two classes.

Selection of students is based on testing conducted by ACER. The test is the Higher Ability Selection Test (HAST), which is conducted in Year 6 for the following years intake of Year 7s.

All enquiries regarding the functioning of the program should be directed to the relevant Associate Principal.

The application process for the test taking place on Saturday 26 February 2022 has now closed. Results from this test will be shared when received, and offers will then be made.

Please be advised that a second test date will occur in Semester 2 2022 (for current Year 6). To register your interest please complete the Registration of Interest Form found below and forward it to the AEP Secretary via email. You will then be notified when further information becomes available.
