Academic Extension Course
The Academic Extension Course (AEC) is offered to students in Years 8, 9 and 10. The course varies from the Gifted and Talented Selective Academic Program in that it is a school based program for students who show academic talent in science, mathematics and the humanities. This course is suited to academically able students who do not necessarily want the acceleration and additional pressureof the Gifted and Talented Program but enjoy the challenge of problem solving with an academic focus in various learning areas. Students may be moved from his program if they do not sustain the appropriate work standard from semester to semester. The program aims to extend and stimulate students whilst still progressing with mainstream topics. Students who wish to apply for this program are required to sit for a school-based test.
