The Honours Academy Program consists of the highest-performing academic students in years 11 and 12, twenty students from each year level. Each student is paired with a teacher who will be an individual mentor to the student for the two years of senior school.
The mentor(teacher) guides students to manage their learning independently through monitoring their performance and assisting them to gain greater insight into themselves as learners. Studies indicate that formal youth mentoring programs can promote positive outcomes, such as improved self-esteem, social skills and career development. Participation in this program is by invitation only
