Accelerated Program

At South Oakleigh College we are committed to providing a learning environment where students can excel. The Accelerated Program is designed to challenge and extend high-achieving students. The broad aim of the program is to develop high-order thinking skills so that our students can gain a deeper understanding of topics studied in Mathematics, English and Science.

We cater to students who have displayed particular strengths in lateral-thinking and problem-solving tasks while providing them with the chance to work with like-minded peers. Our students are given frequent opportunities to reach their full potential.
