Gifted and Talented

Extension  | Enrichment  |  Acceleration and Identification


Acceleration permits a very small number of high ability students – the outstanding and exceptional – to accelerate beyond their enrolment cohort into a higher cohort.

At LJBC, acceleration is an available educational alternative if based on a comprehensive assessment of the readiness of the individual students and their attainment of defined outcomes


In order to identify students for the Academic Talent Program, we do not rely on a single method of identification, but a wide net is cast by the use of multiple criteria and the gathering of as much information as resources will allow.

The following identification criteria are used:

Standardised tests of intellectual potential
Tests of academic achievement
State wide literacy and numeracy tests
Semester reports
Psychological reports
Teacher nomination
Parent nomination
Self and peer nomination

Expression of interest

If you have a child who has been recognised as gifted and who you want to nominate for the Academic Talent Development Program, please complete the Expression of Interest form attached and email to: Sonja van Aswegen at LJBC
