The ​​​High School Preparation (HSP) program provides an intensive and in-depth English language program that prepares students for mainstream high school studies.

HSP students are taught in a high school with real high school students in the mathematics, science and art classrooms and only Australian qualified teachers provide the necessary classes and lessons.

There are 3 centrally located Brisbane high schools that host HSP and their priority is to make sure the transition to mainstream schooling is smooth.

Please note the HSP school will be chosen for the student based on their mainstream high school selection.

Students will also have access to discounted Go Card transport passes for their bus, train and ferry travel.

Our HSP program features:

  • 10-week modules
  • minimum 20 hours of instruction per week
  • 6 different levels so you can learn at the right level and pace
  • a range of learning methods, including textbook, video, group discussion and practical activities
  • many opportunities to make friends through lessons, excursions and sport.

Program length: 10 to 40 weeks (depending on the level of English demonstrated).

Age range: 12 to 18 years

Program entry: at the beginning of any school term (January, April, July, October). An extra Term 5 is also available especially for High School Preparation
