Junior Excellence Program

Are you looking for a program that will challenge and inspire your child to reach their full potential? Look no further than St Mary's College Junior Excellence Academy! Our high school excellence program is designed specifically for students in years 7 - 9 to provide students with a rigorous and stimulating academic experience that will prepare them for success in high school and beyond. 

At the Junior Excellence Academy, we believe that every student has the potential to excel. That's why we offer a curriculum that is both challenging and engaging, with a focus on STEM subjects, critical thinking, and problem-solving. Our teachers are highly qualified and dedicated to helping each student reach their full potential. 

In addition to our academic program, we also offer a wide range of extracurricular activities, including sports teams, music and drama programs, and clubs for students with specific interests. These activities not only provide students with the opportunity to explore their passions, but also help them develop important life skills such as teamwork, leadership, and time management.  Our academy students will be encouraged to broaden their interests and challenge themselves in a wide variety of academic competitions and extra-curricular activities. 

Our state-of-the-art facilities, including modern classrooms and cutting-edge technology, provide students with the resources they need to succeed. Each student in the academy will be mentored by a senior member of our college leadership team, where they will meet individually with each student to set goals and reflect on their effort and performance each term. – this will ensure that each student receives the individual attention they need to thrive. Academy students will also have the opportunity to be a part of the Young Scholars Program – in which they are introduced to university study and life through field trips to the University of the Sunshine Coast. 

Being part of the Junior Excellence Academy is more than just joining an academic program - it's joining a community of students, teachers, and families who are all committed to excellence.
