The purpose of the MacGregor State High School Academic Excellence Program is to challenge students to extend and develop their academic abilities. The program also focuses on providing students a framework to develop their personal strengths, and understand how to use them to impact the world around them.
- The program is specifically designed to develop and maximise students’ potential in an environment that promotes a strong culture of academic excellence.
- Learning experiences are linked to four key capabilities: Critical and Creative Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Organisation and Time Management.
- Academic Excellence students complete the same curriculum and sit the same assessment in their core subjects. Extension work occurs in the regular curriculum through a range of means, including negotiated learning experiences, fast tracking, and the selection of more cognitively demanding tasks, community projects and enhancement activities.
- Applicants are assessed via an ACER entrance exam in conjunction with report card and NAPLAN results.
