The opportunity for extension and support at Ringwood Secondary College is a dynamic feature of the teaching and learning program. Teacher flexibility and expertise allow for a rich program throughout the year.
ACE – Achievement, Commitment, Excellence – A program for high ability students.
The College ACE program for high achieving students is offered to students in Y 7 – 10.
The aim of the program is to engage and challenge high ability students to reach their full intellectual, social and emotional potential in an enriched educational program. It is offered to students who demonstrate academic skills above those of their peer group, are self-directed and strongly motivated to achieve academically.
The ACE class progresses into Years 9 & 10, where students continue to participate in a rigorous and challenging curriculum in their core subjects. In Year 9, students will also select elective studies as part of their program.
In Year 10, students will have the opportunity to undertake one or two VCE subjects (Units 1 and 2). This will allow them to study one or two Year 12 studies (Units 3 and 4) in Year 11 and provide them with the opportunity to study a University Enhancement Study in Year 12.
