Excellence programs

​​​ASPIRE Excellence

​​Varsity College offers a range of programs designed to extend students beyond the mainstream curriculum. Our ASPIRE excellence programs run from years 4 to 12. ​If your child excels in the academic, cultural or sporting domains they may wish to apply for the ASPIRE excellence programs.

For more information regarding each program please go to the primary and secondary ASPIRE pages. Please note that we only accept ASPIRE applications at certain times of the year please check the primary and secondary ASPIRE pages to confirm when applications are open.

Expectations for all ASPIRE program students​

​ASPIRE students will:

  • participate in ASPIRE in the area(s) for which they were accepted into the program.
  • follow school rules and policies and represent Varsity College in an exemplary manner both at school and in the wider community.
  • maintain a high level of academic achievement on their report card in subjects relating to their ASPIRE program (scholarship students are required to maintain an 'A' standard to continue their scholarship).
  • achieve an 'A' standard on their report card for effort and behaviour in subjects to which their ASPIRE program relates. 

If these are not adhered to, a review process will be undertaken.

AS​PIRE program scholarships

Students deemed as exceptional in their ability may be offered a scholarship – this may include school fees and a uniform pack upon enrolment as well as a range of other benefits depending on the area of excellence.


Decisions regarding positions in the ASPIRE program and/or Scholarship program will be made by the relevant Head of School and Executive Principal. This decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into. ​
