Centres for Excellence
The Department of Education has established five Centres for Excellence within identified senior secondary colleges and comprehensive high schools. Each Centre for Excellence has a unique Specialisation Focus (see list below) aligning school, higher education and industry sector resources and expertise to deliver academic, career and leadership opportunities and outcomes for interested students.
Centres for Excellence cater for high ability students in Years 10, 11 and 12 who have a passion for learning in a specialist area that has been identified by the school/college.
The learning program for students includes higher education and industry sector opportunities. The curriculum is rigorous and challenging. Students undertake normal course requirements as well as having the opportunity for extended study and research in their areas of interest. To read more about some of the activities that the Centres for Excellence have been involved in over the past six months please read the feature in the
