Nambour State College Pinnacle Program 

Nambour State College has built a strong reputation for providing outstanding academic outcomes.  This is the tenth year Nambour State College will deliver an exciting program that caters for the needs of highly academically-minded students. The Pinnacle Program is an accelerated learning program to support students of above-average ability.

Providing a learning environment that supports students' learning, the Pinnacle Program not only encourages students to strive for excellence, it also supports a focus on higher-order thinking skills and problem solving.  Students will support each other in learning and participate in peer mentoring.  The Pinnacle Program also provides students with the skills to be active citizens within our community and achieve excellence in their senior years of schooling.

A Young Pinnacle Scholars Program is also available for students in Year 5 & 6.  The program is designed to provide enrichment opportunities for bright and highly motivated students.  Young Pinnacle Scholars will participate in a number of challenging activities with other like-minded students.

Successful applicants will participate in four 'Excellence Days' throughout the year at Nambour State College.  The four 'Excellence Days' will occur once per term.  Each of the four days will cover a range of subject areas including Science, Mathematics, English, History, Geography, Information Technology, Agricultural Science, Health/Physical Education and the Arts (drama/music/art).  Young Pinnacle Scholars have the opportunity to access and sample subjects and facilities in a high school setting.

Successful applicants will participate in additional excellence classes throughout the whole year. Students will still participate in all the rotation electives on both elective lines. At Nambour State College, we are proud to offer a wide variety of award winning ensembles, groups and activities in which students can participate in.​
