The Ignite Academic Acceleration Pathway is a differentiated pathway that caters specifically for highly capable students.


In the Bracken Ridge State High School Ignite Academic Acceleration Pathway, students have the opportunity to learn and be assessed at a pace exceeding that of their current year level, with a focus on 21st Century Skills. 

The ignite program is currently being offered at BRSHS in 2022 and 2023.

​The path​​way aims to respond flexibly to advanced student learning needs, particularly those of high achieving students.
To prepare students for global learning and active citizenship, students in ​this pathway are challenged with concepts beyond their current year level, with a focus on cross curriculum priorities and 21st century skills.​

​Ignite classes run across all studied subjects in Year 7.
To be involved in the pathway, students do not need to excel in all subject areas, but would need to be maintaining high standards of effort and behaviour across their program.

​To remain part of Ignite, students must maintain high academic standards in all studied subjects. Ignite students should readily engage in opportunities to extend themselves academically, such as participating in state and/or national competitions.
Information about such competitions and Pathways will be made available to Ignite students throughout the year.
