The needs of academically talented students are specifically catered for through the Academic Extension Program, which operates in Mathematics, English, Science and HASS in Years 7 to 10.
The Academic Extension Program offered by Applecross Senior High School is NOT a GATE (Department of Education Gifted and Talented Education Program), therefore “out of area” academic extension applicants WILL NOT sit the academic extension testing.
Students will be required to gain access to Applecross Senior High School via the usual enrolment application process. “Out of Area” applications are based on distance from the school to the student’s residential address. The school will decide if any “out of area” applications will be accepted towards the end of Term 3 of the preceding year of entry. Should an “out of area” applicant gain enrolment at Applecross Senior High School, their academic performance will be reviewed at that time for entry into the Academic Extension program.
Academic Extension Application forms should be returned as soon as possible, with applications closing 3.00pm Friday 2nd July 2021.
Testing date information will be emailed to all applicants towards the end of Term 2.
It is recommended you save the PDF form before completing the application. You will be unable to submit the form if you use the web version of Acrobat (the web version has limited functions). If you do not have Acrobat Reader, you can download the program by clicking on the link below.
