High Achievers' Program


Greensborough College is committed to delivering educational programs that meet the needs of a wide range of individual abilities and interests.  The College celebrates these different talents and skills and encourages students to develop at a pace appropriate to them.

Highly able students together with those with a strong work ethic often have needs which require special attention.

The Greensborough College High Achievers' Program challenges and engages these higher ability students to deepen and broaden their learning.

Greensborough College runs a Year 7 program which is open to students who are academically able and have a strong work ethic.  Students continue in this program at Year 8. Students are encouraged to undertake extension and enrichment work relating to each learning area. Students will also be expected to undertake additional home study.

The Greensborough College High Achievers' program is tailor-made for students who have long term ambitions of achievement in VCE and maximising their A.T.A.R for University entrance.
