Fountain Gate Secondary College's High Achiever's Program has really aided me in achieving success during high school. A more mature and dynamic class environment really helped me learn and grow during high school. I'm thankful for the experiences I've had with such an intelligent and ambitious group of people which have grew to be a family after so many years spent together.

Hayden Reid - 2014
Being a part of HAP for the past three years at FGSC has been something that I have always enjoyed and felt privileged to be a part of because it has provided me with an engaging academic environment by setting goals and challenges for both my peers and I. The program has allowed myself and my classmates to participate in extra-curricular programs such as Future Problem Solving, DOXA University Pathways Program, and Emerging Sciences Victoria. Through these opportunities, I have consequentially gained knowledge about the world around me and developed personal growth and skills such as leadership and teamwork – both of which are very important to me.
