Since 1980, Victorian government secondary schools have run special programs in accredited schools for gifted students. These are known as SEAL (Select Entry Accelerated Learning) schools.
Victoria’s Ministry of Education suspended her SEAL school accreditation in 2014. The Academy of Accredited SEAL Schools (TAASS) was founded to preserve this tradition and enable a group of like-minded students to grow academically, socially and emotionally. The SEAL Academy follows Gagne’s model for defining gifted and gifted students.
Since then, the SEAL Academy has implemented its own certification system. SEAL Academy schools seek accreditation every three years following a thorough review process conducted by independent educators. This allows parents and students to be confident that SEAL Academy schools offer quality, cutting-edge programs to a talented group of students.
