St Stephen’s Catholic College endeavours to deliver a holistic curriculum which allows students to develop academically, socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically. While years 7 to 10 follow the Australian Curriculum, the senior school offers both academic and vocational pathways. Students are expected to achieve their personal best and to rise to the challenges inherent in the curriculum we offer.
Years 7 – 10 Curriculum Overview
The college’s Years 7-10 curriculum program is aligned to State and National developments in curriculum and it is therefore both relevant and current to today’s adolescent learner. Our program reflects both a breadth and depth of learning and it prepares students well for study in Years 11 and 12 and beyond.
Year 11 – 12 Curriculum Overview
The needs of the individual are at the centre of the Senior Curriculum and the college provides various paths to further study and careers. Students may embark on a rigorous academic program which prepares them for higher education learning or they may access an alternative pathway which includes school-based apprenticeships and traineeships combined with Certificate courses offered by TAFE and other outside providers. Years 11 and 12 students are offered a wide range in Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority and Authority Registered subjects.
In 2018, the college is preparing for the introduction of the new QCE (Queensland Certificate of Education) system with year eleven in 2019. The focus on the 21st century skills is an important part of the college curriculum.
