Glenroy College has established an acceleration program for selected students moving from grade 6 into year 7.

The Glenroy College Acceleration Program groups together the best students at each year level from Years 7 to 9 into one class. The main aims of the program are to provide access to faster paced curriculum and deeper learning with minimal repetition, and to provide opportunities for enrichment and extension. Acceleration students have the opportunity to begin a VCE subject in Year 10.
