Commencing in Year 7 and continuing to Year 10, we offer students in the Academic Extension Program (AEP) a highly engaging and challenging program delivered by experienced teachers. Extra-curricular activities are designed to enhance their understanding of the Australian Curriculum, as well as excursions and incursions to develop leadership, self-confidence and problem-solving skills. 

The study of the Japanese language is a compulsory component for all AEP students, culminating in an invitational tour of Japan in Year 10. 


Our expectations of students in the Program are high; progress, behaviour and attendance is closely monitored.  Places are offered to applicants at the College’s discretion; successful applicants must be enrolled at the College meeting all the requirements of the Enrolment Application process.
