Extension Class – Year 8/9
We are excited to offer the Special Extension Class for high achieving Year 8 students to further develop their learning potential and excel in their academic achievements. Inspired by like-minded, bright students with a strong work ethic, the students can reach their own potential in Maths, English and General Science subjects at their own pace.

SPECIAL EXTENSION, ACCELERATED LEARNING PATHWAY AT TUTORS SA
Tutors SA has established an Accelerated Learning Pathway for high achieving students. The pathway starts from the ACER Level 1/Ignite Scholarship Preparation Course, followed by a special stream of extension classes all the way up to Year 12, where students go through extension and accelerated learning following the Australian Curriculum. High achieving year 8 students who have not joined the ACER Level 1/Ignite Course are also encouraged to apply.
For Year 8 students, the main entry point is “Special Extension Accelerated Class Year 8/9” and will have the opportunity to progress further with our Extension Year 9/10 classes and ultimately to our SACE HeadStart Program for Year 10/11 students where they can get advanced knowledge and exposure to SACE Stage 1 core subjects such as Mathematical Methods, Specialist Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
