Kaitao Accelerate classes are aimed at extending and enriching students.  Their learning is underpinned by a kaupapa centred on developing  independent,  respectful and  resilient  young  adults.

The  programme  is  designed  for  students  to  be  leading  the learning, demonstrating concepts and ideas in ways that match their learning styles.  Students in the Accelerate classes must have a diligent work ethic, positive attitude and excellent attendance.

E-Learning is a fundamental part of this class, providing students with the ability to be technologically confident and flexible, providing   opportunities   for   students   to   learn   in   new   and innovative ways.  Entry into the Accelerate classes is determined through  discussions  with  contributing  Primary  School  teachers and the data they have collected.
