An experiential learning program is transforming Years 9 and 10: Capstone 

Brighton Grammar's Capstone program spans Years 9 and 10 – a vital time in the education of every boy.

Capstone is a series of dynamic, engaging and diverse opportunities. Created within our Positive Masculinity framework, our Capstone program brings together our Anglican heritage, academic, co-curricular and pastoral care programs to create the ideal educational experience, motivating our young boys to be better men.

Some of the benefits of the 9/10 Capstone program


Strengthens family, community and peer relationships and connections


Promotes guided supportive, shared transition as boys become young men


Helps boys learn and grow through transformational experiences

The Program 

The Capstone program is built within the three pillars of positive masculinity (connection, authenticity and motivation) and the four archetypes that represent a BGS boy as he becomes a successful man; the caregiver, the magician, the warrior and the sage. Guided by their peers, the Threshold and Breakthrough experiences throughout the program prepare, develop, extend and challenge our boys to finally complete the First Horizon program near the end of Year 10. Once this program is complete, the boys are welcomed back into the community as young men and they will lead the school through their Years 11 and 12.

While the transition into adulthood is the pinnacle, the journey itself is a crucial part of the process.

The key features of Capstone are:

+M immersion

  • Ontological exploration of self and other (the many ways of being)
  • Social Emotional development through engagement in indigenous, diversity and ethical awareness
  • Guided growth and development through community

The Capstone program is complimented by a robust academic, rich co-curricular, and strong, supportive pastoral care program. This is Year 9 and 10 at BGS.

Stops and timing

Departure from BGS at the end of the school day is 3.50pm sharp for all 3 buses from New Street.

Please note: Buses will run every school day of the year at the same times regardless of events across the School. After school sport training will not alter the departure times. Therefore alternative arrangements must be made by families.

We offer scholarships based on many criteria including area of talent and personal circumstances. 

We welcome applications from talented boys who believe they can make a positive contribution to the BGS community.

The number of Scholarships awarded each year is dependent upon the quality of the applicants and the availability of places.

Scholarships may only be awarded to students who are permanent residents or citizens of Australia.

Opening dates occur throughout the year, depending on the scholarship. If the scholarship you’re interested in is currently closed, please register your interest to be notified of when they open.

Brighton Grammar School welcomes and values international enrolments from Prep through to Year 12 (VCE).
