Curriculum Senior School

The Senior Years curriculum at Prescott College is delivered through the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE). We give students a range of subject choices and offer further subjects through Open Access College or VET subjects through various Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).

Work experience and career guidance as well as discussions involving staff, parents and students will help our students pursue and meet career goals. Our students have continued to pursue successful careers, all the way from Medicine, Engineering and Teaching to Music, Art and specific vocational trades.

Religious Studies is taught from Years 8 – 10 and is continued into Year 11 and 12 as a compulsory subject completed over two years.

The following are the subjects currently (2016) offered in Year 11 and Year 12. Certain subjects have prerequisites before they can be attempted at these year levels. Please enquire of us should you be interested in other subjects to see if there are options available to you.
