Select Entry Accelerated Learning Program

There are currently thirty-six Victorian secondary schools delivering the Select Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL) Program. The SEAL program aims to address the learning needs of gifted and high potential students who are capable of working at a significantly faster pace and in greater depth than their age peers.

Learning in core subjects is accelerated for students in these programs, and opportunities for in depth study are provided. Students usually complete years 7-10 in three years, giving them an extended range of options for their final years of schooling.

Students may subsequently choose to complete additional VCE units, enabling them to accrue a greater breadth of subjects. Some students undertake VCE Extension Studies which allows them to complete one or more university subjects as part of their VCE. Some students choose to enter tertiary education after only five years of secondary schooling.

Secondary Schools with SEAL programs are situated throughout metropolitan Melbourne and rural Victoria. Each school is responsible for determining its own selection criteria. Enquiries about Select Entry Accelerated Learning Programs should be made early in the year prior to the students' year 7 placement. Entrance exams usually begin in May. Enquiries should be made directly to schools.
