Students are accepted into the Bright Programs by application and interview.
Application forms must be filled in by a teacher, a parent and the student. The application and interview process takes place in Term 1 of each year and interviews are held shortly thereafter.
If shortlisted, students attend an interview. They must be prepared to discuss their leadership and problem-solving skills, and how they have demonstrated initiative and an interest in rigorous learning. Evidence of these attributes should also be brought to the interview.
Interviews for Year 7 students will normally be held in Term 1 of the year before entry to Year 8 at Brighton Secondary School.
Applicants will then receive a letter indicating the outcome of their application.
