Mathematics Academy is a SACE Stage 1 program for students especially interested and excited about mathematics and intending to study SACE Stage 2 Mathematical Methods, Specialist Mathematics and Physics. Students can enter the Mathematics Academy in either Year 10 or Year 11.

Mathematics Academy provides an integrated program to connect the mathematics learning (either Australian Curriculum Year 10 or SACE Stage 1) with the SACE Stage 1 Physics curriculum. The program is designed to explore the mathematics content deeply in a collaborative environment, experience a variety of applications and develop creative and critical thinking. Students will explore the wonder of mathematics and physics, and its connections to the world around us, future studies and STEM professions.

Mathematics Academy students will engage with extra-curricular activities such as mathematics puzzles, maths art, university events and industry excursions, as well as mathematics and engineering competitions and challenges. Students will have a rich and strong foundation to complete SACE Mathematical Methods, Specialist Mathematics and Physics in Stage 2.
