Laying the foundations for a bright future
The Senior School at Concordia, encompassing Years 10 to 12, is a challenging yet supportive environment, providing opportunities for students to build on their individual strengths and interests as they prepare for their future learning and career pathways.
Students in the Senior Years continue to develop key literacy, numeracy and lifelong learning skills, while gaining knowledge and skills in specialised areas of interest. Our academic programs encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning goals and outcomes, while supporting them to grow as confident, independent and collaborative learners.
The Senior School academic program builds on the International Baccalaureate Programme offered in the Middle School years. Students choose from a wide range of subjects as part of a broad and well balanced curriculum, which enables them to gain the IB Diploma or the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) on completion of Year 12.
Our students have access to a range of resources when choosing their future learning and career pathways. All Year 10 students complete the Personal Learning Plan (PLP), a SACE subject designed to help students to make informed choices about courses and subjects in Years 11 and 12.
Information nights at Concordia, together with guidance from senior staff, subject and Home Class teachers, provides students with valuable support and advice. There are also ‘hands-on’ opportunities to undertake work experience and to make visits to universities and TAFE institutions to assist students in their decision making.
A number of our graduating students go on to pursue tertiary studies overseas. Concordia College is proud to be an authorised test centre for university admissions tests, including the TSA and BMAT, for the University of Cambridge, University of Oxford and other leading UK universities.
