The aim of the Academic Excellence program at Robina State High School is to support academically gifted students in reaching their fullest potential. The program has been developed to support students to enrich their academic abilities and knowledge, explore new interests and develop independent learning skills. The program is designed to support participants by being linked with peers who share the same academic profiles and interests.
In Semester 1 of the Year 7 Academic Excellence Program, students are exposed to an enriched curriculum across the core learning areas of English, Science, Mathematics and Humanities. The focus of this semester is to establish the foundations that are essential for success in further academic enrichment pathways. Students are also granted exclusive entry into the year 7 STEM program.
Beyond Semester 1 students will choose from two distinct Academic Excellence pathways:
- The Kingfisher Program continues the extension and enrichment experiences students are exposed to in Semester 1. Further information can be found on the Kingfisher Program page.
- The Japanese Immersion Program continues to extend students academically, however students will begin to study some of their classes through Japanese Instruction. Further information can be found on the Japanese Immersion page.
Entry into the Academic Excellence Program is a selective process and is competitive. Students applying for a position in the Academic Excellence Program will be measured against the following selection criteria:
- Demonstration of high academic achievement in all core subject areas (A and B results)
- NAPLAN Results
- Involvement and success in other co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities
Further information regarding the application process is detailed on the Expression of Interest application form.
