Academic Advancement Program

Wodonga Senior Secondary College proudly offers the Academic Advancement Program (AAP) as an accelerated learning opportunity in Semester 1 of Year 10. AAP is designed to enhance the learning of students with high educational aspirations.

The program is offered in Advanced English, Advanced Maths, Advanced Humanities and Advanced Science. Students accepted into AAP have the option of doing one or more of the advanced subjects depending on their needs and elective choices.

The benefits of studying Advanced subjects are:

  • Developing a deeper understanding of the subject;
  • Setting up solid study habits that will help students excel in VCE; and
  • Being challenged and more prepared to pursue harder subjects in VCE.

Students currently enrolled in AAP at WMYC can automatically transfer into the program at WSSC by selecting Advanced subjects.

Students not currently enrolled in AAP will be selected based on their WMYC Essential Assessment results and teacher recommendation. Students need to select the Advanced subject/s to be considered. If a student is unsuccessful they will be notified and put into the standard core subject.

Key AAP Dates

  • AAP Senior College Presentation for current AAP students – Tuesday 3 August 2021
  • Complete Subject Selection – Monday 23 August 2021
  • Students Notified – Monday 13 September 2021
