what is Seal?
Victorian Government secondary schools have been operating specific programs at authorised schools for gifted students since 1980. These have been known as Select Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL) schools. The Academy of Accredited SEAL Schools (TAASS) has been established to maintain this tradition to enable groups of like minded students to develop academically, socially and emotionally. The SEAL Academy follows Gagné’s model for the definition of gifted and talented students.
What is the Seal Academy?
The Academy of Accredited SEAL Schools (TAASS) is a collective of like minded schools who strongly value Gifted Education in Victorian Government secondary schools. SEAL Academy schools offer engaging accelerated programs for their groups of gifted students. They meet regularly to share and learn from each others’ experiences of their gifted education programs. SEAL Academy schools offer their teaching staff an extensive professional development program in Gifted Education, and, through their networks, are able to source outstanding educators for their programs.
