Year 7 Pinnacle Program

Each year Kingscliff High School runs a program to cater for aspirational Year 7 students known as the Pinnacle Program. The philosophy behind the Pinnacle Program is to provide a challenging educational environment for students who endeavour to display high levels of academic and personal achievement with a commitment to learning. Student selection utilises the NSW Department of Education High Potential and Gifted Education (HPGE) Policy in the domains of creative, intellectual, physical and social-emotional.

For more information on the Year 7 Pinnacle Program, please do not hesitate to contact the school should you require any information and contact our Pinnacle Program Coordinator, Mrs O'Keeffe.
