In Victoria, a number of government high schools offer programs for very able students which accelerate them through high school and reduce secondary schooling from six years to five years. Entrance is by examination, interview and teacher reference. See more details at the Education Department website. Students may do five years in six or possibly extend their VCE by an additional year.

Accelerated Learning and High Achiever Program examinations are similar to scholarship tests. The test formats are ACER (HAST), University of NSW format and Edutest. The majority of state high school entrance exams are usually held in April. There are only 3 to 6 weeks to apply for the exams so watch carefully for the examination dates.

Due to the excellent reputation of these schools, each school zone becomes popular with soaring house prices. Entry into the programs can give a family outside the school zone an opportunity to get into the school.
