Secondary Curriculum

We have high expectations of our students' attitude to their education; our approach fosters a willingness to learn and opportunities to succeed.


The Secondary School curriculum aims to provide a stimulating, practical academics program tailored to make the learning experience relevant, challenging and interesting. It is delivered in smaller learning communities providing for individual attention and connects classroom learning to real life, better preparing students for their future beyond school.
