If your child is gifted or has the potential to be a high achiever academically, you may want them to join a selective high school. Selective high schools provide an educationally enriched environment for highly achieving and academically gifted students. Parents apply when their child is in Year 5. There are only 17 selective high schools in NSW, thus the positions available are quite limited.
Opportunity classes (OC) cater for gifted and talented Year 5 and 6 students. This is a great opportunity to extend, stimulate and keep bright students engaged. Parents apply for opportunity class placement when their child is in Year 4. It is a two-year placement program. Successful students may leave their current school at the end of Year 4 to attend a school with an opportunity class. The OC is not a pathway to Selective Schools.
Entry into selective schools and OC are administered by the High Performing Students Unit of the NSW Department of Education and are determined by two factors: the entry test the year before (Year 6 for selective and Year 4 for OC) and the school assessments (in Year 5 for Selective and in Year 4 for OC)
There are also parents who prefer to send their child to a private school. If you are in this category, then applying for an academic scholarship may be a wise financial decision. Most private schools offer a full or partial scholarship for gifted students.
Whether you are considering a selective school, scholarship or OC, our specialised programs prepare your child to both outperform in the test and also excel at school assessment to maximise their chances. Our programs are designed and written by our Founder and our experienced team. The programs are enriched by research-proven techniques for students to become problem solvers and higher-order thinkers. We equip students with cognitive load management methods and exam skills to minimise stress and enhance performance. We do not encourage rote learning and definitely no cramming. Our highly qualified teachers include ICAS writers, our Founder and NAPLAN writers and markers.
