The introduction of the Ad Astra Advanced Academics Program provides the School with additional opportunity to support and enhance the academic achievement of our high performing and high potential students in Years 6 and 7.

The Ad Astra Advanced Academics program involves slight to major modifications of the curriculum through adjustments to content, processes and skills. It provides a planned, documented and challenging curriculum that matches the ability of high performing students to:

  • learn at faster rates;
  • find, solve and act on problems more readily; and
  • manipulate abstract ideas and make connections to an advanced degree.

The program includes enrichment and extension activities. Enrichment refers to the broadening of the curriculum to develop knowledge, application, thinking skills and attitudes to a degree of complexity appropriate to the students’ developmental levels. Extension activities involve the deepening of students’ knowledge, understanding and skills.

Ad Astra provides students with opportunities to further develop and extend their academic abilities. They will work with like-minded and similarly capable students, in a challenging environment to enable each of them to attain their highest academic potential.
