Catalyst: Academic Extension Program
The Year 7 Catalyst: Academic Extension Program aims to provide our top academic students with the opportunity to excel in the four learning areas of Mathematics, English, Science and HASS. The program is designed to cater for the needs of our academically talented students, providing them with enrichment and extension activities to broaden their interest and knowledge of the curriculum and beyond.
We aim to assist all students in achieving their academic best at the College, and we encourage students to use creativity, teamwork and communication skills through a range of activities. All activities are designed to engage students and deepen their knowledge and learning. Students in the Catalyst program will have access to the following:
University immersion activities
Competitions across the learning areas
Specialised incursions, excursions and enrichment activities
Entry into the Catalyst Program is by application and an academic testing process. The student’s most recent NAPLAN results and school reports are also taken into consideration. Applications for 2024 have now closed.
The College offers a small number of financial academic scholarships to students entering the Year 7 Catalyst: Academic Extension Program. Current Year 6 students from both the College primary school and external primary schools are encouraged to apply for the 2024 Scholarships. Applications for 2024 have now closed.
