The intent of our AEP program is to identify students with strengths in traditional core subjects and to provide them with the specialised support needed to reach their full academic potential.
Students are provided with an accelerated, extended and enriched curriculum to meet the needs of adolescent learners in their journey to achieve their personal best.
Our processes for identifying gifted learners are diverse. Every learner is unique and many gifted students are are at risk of not demonstrating their capabilities in a conventional classroom environment.
For highly able and gifted students, we offer specialised academic courses in English, humanities and social sciences, mathematics and science as part of our Academic Excellence Program in lower school.
Arts students can participate in this program alongside their arts courses. Participation is based on results of the selective entrance test taken by all applying for Secondary Selective Entrance Gifted and Talented Education programs in Western Australian public schools.
Students living in the local area for the school and also those who are accepted into the Football Excellence Program can also apply for the Academic Excellence Program by sitting the College’s academic testing examination, suitability for this program is determined through the NELSON testing results, NAPLAN data, and school reports .
