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 both the online Accelerated Program Application and the Edutest Registration by 26 June 2020.
