JCBTHS provides students with the opportunity to extend their academic potential, through the acceleration program offered in Years 9 and 10 (Stage 5).

Acceleration allows students to progress in one or more subjects in a shorter timeframe. Accelerating students may count towards their Higher School Certificate results obtained in advance to their cohort. This means that acceleration, other than grade advancement, can be regarded as a form of accumulation. 

The school will work with parents of the accelerating student and the student to ensure that support structures are evident to ensure every chance of success. 

The student can withdraw from the acceleration program at any time, through the process of parent contact, principal/deputy principal notification, similar to when a Year 12 student is seeking permission to drop a subject.
