Applications for the Accelerated Program are now being accepted

High-achieving students are able to work with others of similar abilities in the areas of English, Mathematics and Science while remaining with peers of the same age in the other classes.  The Accelerated Program ensures these students are challenged: they are offered opportunities to explore material in considerable depth and to apply high-order thinking skills to appropriate tasks.

Only students who are currently in Year 6 and have selected South Oakleigh College as their first preference are eligible to apply for this program.

To register your child for testing and consideration for the program, please complete the online EduTest Registration by Thursday 26 August 2021.
