Offered at 24 select public secondary schools, including a fully selective academic school, an arts college, two regional schools and an online program, your child will study with like-minded peers and be taught by expert teachers and mentors who will extend and enrich their studies.

Our academic, arts and languages programs are designed to bring out your child’s exceptional creativity and academic talent.

You can apply for these programs no matter where you live and successful country applicants may be eligible to board at City Beach Residential College or Albany Residential College.

Applications open in October each year and close in February the next year.
