Senior School

Developing Engaged Learners

Where our Middle School Curriculum seeks to instil a love of learning and experience, the Senior Curriculum builds on this by providing multiple learning pathways to ensure our students are engaged learners. Our academic and vocational pathways involve our students as active, engaged learners who are immersed in mature perspectives that converge with and embrace our Catholic values.

Students in the Senior Years (Years 10-12) work towards achieving the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET). Students undertake Stage 1 courses in Years 10 and 11 and Stage 2 courses in Year 12.

In addition, students are able to undertake a range of external vocational education and training courses from Year 10. St John’s also works in partnership with the Northern Territory School of Distance Education (NTSDE) to provide access to Stage 1 and 2 subjects not on offer at the College. Students demonstrating a high level of academic commitment are able to apply to undertake NTSDE subjects from Year 11.
