Academic Citizenship

Keebra Park has developed an Academic Citizenship program to support senior students become more successful in their studies.

The leap from year 10 to year 11 can be difficult and our aspiring academics need the skills required to manage this transition. Many students need help to prepare for the academic rigour of senior subjects with the pressure of assessment dates and exams.

Our Academic Citizenship program is designed to develop the potential of our students so they can realise their personal goals and aspirations.  The program begins in Year 11, as a continuation of an academic pathway with added development of skills and resilience required for senior study. Student need to organise their study time to negotiate the demands of family, sport, peers and school.  This program will enable students to take ownership of their learning and make informed decisions relevant to their own situations.
Students will learn how the Overall Position (OP) score is calculated and how to achieve the best outcome. The program leads into preparation for the Queensland Core Skills (QCS) exam, compulsory for OP students. Students are also provided with the skills to research individual options for tertiary study.
