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.
