- Student Life
Senior School students are supported to choose the right pathway to achieve their future goals.
The South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) is awarded to students who successfully complete their secondary schooling. This internationally recognised qualification ensures students develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in an ever changing world.
Students will complete their SACE in two stages to achieve 200 credits across a range of compulsory subjects and multiple electives of their choice.
As part of SACE, students can receive credits for many different forms of education and training beyond academic subjects. This includes a Vocational Education and Training (VET) pathway, School Based Apprenticeships and recognised community learning. Students may study courses off-site and they often involve a work placement component. VET Courses are nationally accredited and can be a pathway to further study, university or employment.
The College provides each Senior School student with course and subject counselling to ensure that they choose the right pathway and subjects they are interested in, that build on their strengths and skills, and stretch them as a learner. Parents can also be involved in this process.
