​Gifted and talented students from the country have wonderful boarding experiences at City Beach Residential College ​ ​​while they attend some of Perth's best secondary schools.

It's home away from home for up to 65 students who are enrolled in Gifted and Talented Secondary Selective Programs at Perth Modern School, John Curtin College of the Arts and other public schools.

They have the opportunity to live in Perth with other country students in a bush setting close to the beach and share the experience of being in a Gifted and Talented Secondary Selective Program.
