The Ignite program supported by DECS Three secondary schools provide accelerated learning for gifted secondary students. The three schools are + The Heights School + Glenunga International High School + Aberfoyle Park High School Students who live outside the zone of these schools are eligible to apply to be part of the program. The Ignite program offers less review and repetition than in the regular curriculum so students can vertically accelerate through middle school, completing years 8, 9 and 10 in two years. Alternatively, students can opt for a companion program that emphasises subject acceleration and extension, rather than grade skipping. Students are selected for entry into this program on the basis in an ACER assessment (including mathematical ability, writing, comprehension and an abstract reasoning test). When the results are returned from ACER, students are invited to an interview on the basis of their ranking in the test. Related: Programs for gifted and talented students in South Australia
