Subjects

Students studying in Years 10 to 12 can select from either a Uni-ready or Workforce-ready pathway. Courses in Years 11 and 12 are QCAA approved and enable students to work towards their QCE.

The Workforce-ready pathway prepares students to join the work force after school through quality courses including QCAA Applied subjects and VET courses in Years 11 and 12. Students on this pathway must select one English and one Mathematics course along with the compulsory Christian Foundations or Religion and Ethics courses. They will then select from the Certificate courses on offer each semester.
