Indooroopilly SHS are providing information to prospective parents regarding our unique flagship Junior Secondary Acceleration courses for academically talented students who have a willingness for a distinct learning pathway in the areas of Mathematics and Engineering, Spanish, Chinese or Music.
Our Junior Secondary Programs of Excellence provide our students with curricular and co-curricular experiences that are accelerated and match the learning needs of these capable students. Students may cover core content of a school program more rapidly than other students of their own age, providing opportunities for study in the subject area discipline in greater depth.
While students commence this learning pathway in Junior Secondary, as the students continue into Senior Secondary they will have the opportunity to study university subjects in Year 12 if they maintain their accelerated pathway in Junior Secondary. During Term 3, the students who have secured entry into our Junior Secondary Programs of Excellence are invited to attend a six week Preparatory Program to expose students to the skills and capability they will build on in their first year of the program. The successful completion of the Preparatory Program also provides students with an opportunity to make new friends prior to commencing their journey in Year 7.
Applications for our Junior Secondary Programs of Excellence Year 7 students in 2023 will close on 3 December 2021.
