Gifted and Talented Program

Your gifted child is able to learn with other exceedingly capable students – subject to entrance eligibility – as part of a Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program aimed at extending, challenging and inspiring the more adept students.

ACC’s GATE program has been designed to foster:

The program accelerates student learning by extending content knowledge, practising skills development and minimising repetition. It is an exciting and fast-paced learning environment.

Upon successful entry in the GATE program, your child will benefit from:

  • Expert teachers who are trained in working with gifted students
  • A differentiated curriculum aimed at challenging and extending highly capable students
  • Engaging with abstract philosophies, complex ideas and rigorous debates
  • Other gifted students propelling your child’s learning forward
  • Participation in competitions and excursions to engage with the broader academic community

Entrance to the GATE program is selective, based on your child’s past academic reports, an admission test and interview.
