Years 11 & 12

During their HSC years we seek to accommodate the specific learning needs of our students through the provision of Pathways and Acceleration Options. The Pathways option enables students to balance commitments to extracurricular activities with their study commitments by completing the HSC over a longer period of time. Acceleration is available for those very capable students who may be progressed more rapidly through a course in which they have demonstrated superior ability. A number of students are currently in the Acceleration program.

As a consequence, some students may sit for an HSC examination while still in Year 10 or Year 11.

For example, a Santa Sabina Year 10 student completed Music Extension 1 and was placed third in the state in this course for the HSC; several students annually complete an HSC Languages course as Year 11 accelerants.

An increasing number of our students take one of the Vocational Education Courses which are offered at the College or provided externally through TAFE.
