Sapphire Coast Anglican College offers comprehensive educational programs encompassing the full range of key learning areas from pre-kindergarten to year 12. We provide an imaginative, purposeful and enjoyable learning environment where students’ individual needs and abilities are encouraged and nurtured. Problem solving approaches and skills in information and communication technology are integral to teaching programs.
The curriculum is firmly embedded in the requirements of the NSW Board of Studies with a bias towards the traditional mainstream academic courses. Electives begin at year 8; these reflect this bias while maintaining a balance between practical and theoretical studies. At Stage 6 (Years 11 and 12) the emphasis towards university entrance is reflected in that there are no courses offered that do not contribute to the ATAR (the basis upon which university entrance is determined). Vocational Education Training (VET) courses are also possible. At this time, only hospitality and tourism are offered on site, but TAFE courses and in-school apprenticeships can be integrated into a student’s timetable, although additional costs do apply.
Reflecting our Christian ethos as an Anglican school, Christian Studies is undertaken by students in years K – 10 and offered for years 11 and 12, respectively.
Whilst not all our students have university entrance as their goal, Sapphire Coast Anglican College provides a firm foundation for future study beyond school, whether that is in the immediate or distant future.
In summary, we offer a structured liberal education based on the current syllabus preparing students for a successful future beyond school. Our philosophy is to equip students for life whilst developing and encouraging their particular aspirations. Our extensive extra and co-curricular programs complement our curriculum and help to build the whole person.
