What is Aspire?

Aspire is our select entry enrichment program that nurtures students’ academic and personal development.

This program targets students with high aspirations, who actively endeavour to meet challenging learning goals. Aspire students consistently aim for their personal best. These students learn through engaging in a challenging curriculum which is designed to respond to their abilities, interests and needs.

Aspire aims to develop lifelong learners who are enthusiastic, adaptable, creative, collaborative, self-motivated and resilient.

How does the Aspire Program work?

The Aspire program provides a stimulating, enriched curriculum where students will learn with like-minded peers whilst being extended across the eight key learning domains of the Victorian Curriculum.

Undertaking the Compass Award will be a key aspect of the program. This Award was created to enhance young people’s personal development, foster positive attitudes towards learning and promote engagement and interaction with the community. In Year 7 students complete Level 3 of the Compass Award and progress to Level 4 in Year 8.
