Wangaratta High School is one of over 38 government schools who have approval to run the Select Entry and Accelerated Learning (SEAL) Program.
The SEAL Program is an innovative program for highly able students and has been running successfully at Wangaratta High School for a number of years. The program has attracted some of the brightest regional students who move through sections of the Year 7-9 curriculum at a faster pace in a separate class group. The SEAL Program provides these students with the opportunity to work with like-minded peers and prepares them for broader, more intensive Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) studies and/or University Extension units in their senior years.
The SEAL Program specifically caters for students who enjoy a challenge and are capable of performing above the expected level for their age. Many of these students are gifted. The program is most suited to students who are strong across a range of subject areas in primary school, not just one subject. The curriculum is differentiated specifically for highly able students, it moves at a faster pace, involves less repetition and has greater breadth and depth than the mainstream Year 7-9 curriculum.
ApplicationsApplications for prospective Year 7 students are made during Terms 2 & 3 of Year 6.
We accept applications for the current Year 7, 8 or 9 SEAL classes if places are avaliable. A selection process is used to identify studets for whom SEAL would be appropriate which involves application responses, external testing, teacher recommendation, and an analysis of student achievement data. Applications for the 2022 Year 7 intake are now closed. If you have questions please contact the SEAL Coordinator.
