Approved Specialist Programs

Approved Specialist Programs


Governor Stirling SHS run three Approved Specialist Programs in;

Artsmedia Approved Specialist Program
Engineering Approved Specialist Program
AFL Football Approved Specialist Program


Starting at 2 hours of tuition per week in Years 7-8, each specialised program builds up to 4 hours of tuition per week from years 9 until the duration of the course. These programs equip your student with in-depth knowledge and skills to pursue a career in these areas. They will enjoy a rich learning environment that is both challenging and stimulating, taught by experienced teachers with specialised knowledge, helping students reach their full potential.


Families living outside our local intake area can also apply for these programs.


For more information on our Approved Specialist programs, please come along to our ASP Parent Information Evening held this year on Wednesday 20 March 5:00-6:00pm 2024.
