LEAP (Learning Extension & Acceleration) Applications
The LEAP Program
is available to both current students entering Year 8 and new students entering Years 8 and 9 in 2020.
A letter has been sent to parents/caregivers outlining the process for application and selection. Applications
close on Wednesday 6 November 2019.
LEAP Extension is available to selected students in Years 8 and 9 who demonstrate
exceptional aptitude and ability in English and Mathematics. The program provides an enriched learning
environment designed to extend and challenge each individual to achieve his full potential.
LEAP Acceleration may also provide some students with the opportunity to participate in curriculum acceleration
in Mathematics. The course is compacted and opportunities for in depth study are provided. Students would
usually complete Years 8-10 in two years, giving them an extended range of options for their final years
of schooling. Ability to undertake Acceleration is confirmed via testing facilitated by the Mathematics
Head of Faculty. If Acceleration into the next year level is not deemed appropriate, Extension within
the LEAP class is still available.
Upon acceptance into the Acceleration Program, students may
subsequently choose to complete additional South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) credits, enabling
them to accrue a greater breadth of Stage 2 subjects in the senior years. Some students may undertake
some university studies while completing their Stage 2 course.
