We believe in supporting families in ensuring students have every chance of success. Academic Task Force’s Head Start Program provides the necessary preparation at the beginning of the new school year to maximise academic success.
This course gives students an academic boost after the long holiday break. It provides the perfect way for students to get a head start on their studies, preview important concepts and gain an overview of their ATAR subjects.
The Head Start Program also offers an excellent refresher for students who have commenced the year’s work in term 4.
