Alternative Learning Programs - Year 9 & 10

At Fountain Gate Secondary College we have re-imagined our alternative learning program to be better suited to the pathways that we offer our students. We understand that success will look different for every student. The purpose of the alternative learning programs is to ensure that every student is understood, engaged and successful. We will ensure that the teaching and learning is catered towards the specific learning needs of each student. Students will be supported to aspire to and achieve their educational and pathway goals.

The JumpStart program is an alternative learning program for Year 9 students. The program will endeavour to cater for the learning needs of students who feel disconnected from mainstream curriculum. JumpStart will enable students to establish clear educational and career goals for their future.

The StartReady program is an alternative learning program for Year 10 students. The program will endeavour to cater for the learning needs of students who are interested in a HeadSTART VCE Pathway.

We would like to invite you to the online Parent/Guardian Information Session being held on Wednesday the 16th of September at 4pm through Microsoft Teams. We will be going through the new alternative learning programs in greater detail, and will be answering your questions throughout.
