Cleveland District State High School - Year 6 into 7 Academic Excellence Testing for 2022

 

Cleveland District State High School has a proud tradition of Preparing Students to Meet the Future.  One of the ways we do this is to provide opportunities for students to excel in their chosen pathway.  For students who are extremely motivated and achieve high academic results, we provide an Academic Excellence Program in Year 7 which leads into an Intensive Academic Pathway in Senior, with students selecting general ATAR subjects or the International Baccalaureate Diploma.  The aim of the Year 7 program is to provide these students with learning experiences which challenge their thinking and ensure they have engaging opportunities to bring out their academic best.  Places in this program are limited and are awarded to the students who perform well in the entrance exams, combined with positive effort and behaviour comments on their report cards from their primary school.  These exams are open to families both within and out of our catchment area.

 

This year, we will again use Edutest to administer and assess our entrance exams.  Edutest is an Australian educational assessment organisation that provides quality assessments and services to over 100 independent and government schools around the country.  Their team provides thorough diagnostic testing and reporting feedback to parents and students. 

 

The test will take place on Saturday, 15 May at 9am.  It will assess students against a range of skills in numeracy, literacy, reading comprehension and writing.  Families who wish to apply for a place for their student in the Year 7 Academic Excellence program in 2022 are required to register their student for the entrance exam via the following link and pay the $75 fee (plus GST)

 

Registrations close Friday, 7 May. Once registered, we will be in touch with further details about the organisation of the day.  If your student would like to prepare themselves for the test, please visit the Edutest website for practice tests.

 

This year, we are pleased to announce that we will award scholarships to the students whose results place them in the top five participants.  The scholarships will cover the annual cost of the Student Resource Scheme for 2022.
