Zenith program

High performing Year 7 and 8 students at either campus can apply to the Zenith program.  Students in the Zenith program study a compacted and more challenging version of the core curriculum. These classes enhance problem solving and critical thinking skills in high achieving students.

Acceptance into the Zenith class decided based on a combination of:

  • academic ability and achievement (Year 5 and 6 reports)
  • skills in literacy and numeracy
  • ability to work independently
  • ability to think critically and creatively
  • primary teacher nomination
  • information from parents and caregivers on the expression of interest (done via your primary school website)

Students applying for placement in a Zenith class may also apply to the academy program or personal interest project (PIP). Membership in an academy or PIP will complement the Zenith program as they fit together as part of a weekly curriculum program.
