Academic Excellence Program

​Cavendish Road SHS is pleased to offer the Academic Excellence Program for year 7 through to 12. The purpose of this program is to allow highly capable students opportunities to extend themselves in fields that are of interest to them, whilst developing thinking skills and being exposed to experiences that are not able to be offered to the broader student population.

The Academic Excellence Program has two distinct phases: years 7 & 8, and years 9 - 12.
 
Phase 1: Year 7 & 8
 

In years 7 and 8 all students selected in the program will participate in a series of events run collaboratively by the Academy of Ideas, Academy of Science and Academy of Maths. These extension opportunities are offered in a range of formats, for example, as after-school programs, excursions, incursions and camps.

An overview of the year 7 and 8 Academic Excellence Program and selection processes are summarised in the Academic Excellence Program Overview (PDF, 297KB).
 

Students who have been successful in gaining entry to the Academic Excellence Program in year 7 and 8 will be invited, along with their parents, to an information session early in Term 1, 2016.

Phase 2: Years 9 - 12
 

From year 9 to 12 selected students will have the opportunity to continue in one or more of the Academy Programs (Ideas, Science, Maths) during curriculum time, as a subject offering. For more information, follow these links:
