Opportunity

We offer an intellectully stimulating education program which is rigorous but supportive, incluse but flexible and conducive to the pursuit of excellence. 
Students are challenged by an accelerated and differentiated curriculum that values higher order thinking and critical literacy in a student centred learning environment.

Growth

The program brings together like minded, highly academically capable students, fostering the development of their talents as well as caring for their social and emotional needs.

Balance

Our uniquely flexible program is available to students in Year 7 (continuing then into 8, 9 and 10) and operates in two pathways - a Maths and Science pathway and Humanities & Social Sciences pathway. Students may access one or both pathways depending on their academic needs. This aspect of the program differentiates it from the Department of Education and Training's affiliated GATE program.

Selection

Selection into the Ocean Reef SHS Academic Extension Program is based on the results of a selection test which is conducted at Ocean Reef Senior High School.
