Academic Learning Programs for High Achievers (ALPHA)  

What is ALPHA?

 
ALPHA classes are designed to extend academically talented students and allow them the opportunity to grow, creating a culture of excellence as they develop into an independent learner.
 
The ALPHA students are supported to cultivate a base understanding of curriculum more quickly and autonomously than core Junior Secondary classes. This allows the class to spend more time in relating knowledge gained to their own context, build critical thought processes and apply new knowledge to other areas.  
 

ALPHA empowers students to be critical and creative thinkers who use reason, logic, resourcefulness, imagination and innovation in both teacher facilitated and collaborative inquiry based learning activities.

The ALPHA classes provide an environment where similar minded learners establish positive relationships, working effectively in teams, handling challenging situations constructively and developing leadership skills to build and enhance skills of self-regulation.
