The Queensland Academies Young Scholars Program offers optional learning extensions/opportunities for students in Years 6-9. It is a fee-for-service program with an annual membership fee of $30.00. Members will receive regular email alerts outlining details of upcoming programs and how to register.
The rationale for this initiative is to develop the Queensland Academies Young Scholars Program as a teaching and learning strategy for gifted/highly capable years six to nine students within mainstream schools. In doing so this will create a sustained network to align with collaborative development and delivery of an innovative and unique four year curriculum that responds to the needs of the Department of Education and Training’s Framework for Gifted Education.
The Young Scholars Program offers a range of programs to its members. From the commencement if 2018, these will be primarily offered online after school. This allows like-minded students to work together in an interactive environment
Our program provides students with the opportunity to engage in a series of interrelated courses designed to develop students’ skills and knowledge across a range of subject areas. Students benefit from learning through contemporary on-line pedagogy that offers collaborative, accelerated learning focused on deep inquiry and real world research and issues.
