We offer a broad and stimulating curriculum which provides a wide range of learning experiences to ensure that all students have the opportunity to fulfil their potential now and in the future.
Students are assigned to a Homeroom Teacher who is responsible for the day to day welfare of the students in their care.
Students in all year levels take part in Religious Education classes. In Year 11 students choose between the pretertiary Studies of Religion and the non pretertiary Religion in Society courses, and in Year 12, between Community Service Learning and Studies of Religion. All students in all year levels also participate in a year level retreat which gives them the opportunity to explore their own spirituality and to grow closer to God.
Years 7 & 8 Curriculum
In these year levels the core subjects of Religion, English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography and Health and Physical Education are taught by as small a number of teachers as possible to assist students in the transition from Primary to Secondary School. Students are also given the opportunity to develop skills in the areas of Performing and Visual Arts, Languages (Chinese and Italian), Design and Technology (Food Studies, Textiles and Design in Wood) and Digital Technologies.
Years 9 & 10 Curriculum
In these years all students study the core subjects of Religion, English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography (Year 9 only) and Health and Physical Education. Students in Year 10 also undertake Pathways Planning.

Years 11 & 12 Curriculum
Students choose from a wide range of TQA Level 3 (pretertiary), Level 2 (non pretertiary) and VET subjects. Our Year 11 & 12 Course Guide has details of the subjects offered.
Information Evenings are conducted for students entering Years 9, 10 and 11 (and their parents) to assist students to make appropriate subject choices which will lead to the successful completion of their Year 12 studies at the College.
When choosing subjects (especially for Years 11 and 12), individual subject counselling is available in order to ensure that each student is given the opportunity to study a course of subjects best suited to her individual needs. To this end, the curriculum is catering for individual needs and abilities.
