What is Vermont Secondary College’s LEEP?
LEEP is a select entry enrichment program designed to meet the needs of talented and gifted students. The rigorous and challenging academic program provides students with an opportunity to work with like-minded students in a supportive and encouraging environment.
LEEP is not an accelerated program; rather it allows students to progress with their school age peers whilst undertaking a challenging curriculum that enriches and extends them in the disciplines of English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography and Digital Technologies.
Students will remain with their LEEP peers for three years from Year 7 to Year 9 and from Year 10 onwards they will be able to access a range of VCE/VET subjects, university subjects and a range of challenging electives but this will depend on the student’s continued high academic performance.
How are students selected for LEEP?
The 2018 Year 7 LEEP class will be selected from our total enrolled Year 7 cohort only.
We will first select our Year 7 students using the standard Department of Education & Training DET enrolment process (refer ‘Year 6 to Year 7 Enrolment‘), then we will shortlist our LEEP class from this cohort using information from the primary schools and from the educational assessment data gathered on Saturday, 15 September 2018.
Families will be able to indicate interest in a LEEP placement for their child on the ‘Language, LEEP & House selection’ pro-forma, distributed to families this August when enrolments are confirmed. Students who have nominated to be considered for the LEEP program on the pro-forma and have demonstrated the appropriate personal and interpersonal skills, and outstanding academic skills, will then be considered for selection into LEEP. The successful students will be offered a place in the 2019 LEEP class.
