Supporting our teenagers as they become young adults
As our teenagers grow towards adulthood, our secondary school aims to develop students of fine character who are intrinsically motivated to learn and make a positive difference in our community, nation and world.
The teenage years can be a challenging time for many students, but by investing in a rich pastoral care program, and adopting a zero-tolerance approach to bullying, cyber bullying, dangerous behaviour and illegal substances, South Coast Baptist College ensures they are able to thrive in a safe and positive environment.
We are committed to knowing our students and assisting them to discover and develop their God-given gifts and talents.
Teachers apply research-based best practice to deliver a curriculum that is engaging, relevant and effective at helping students reach their post-secondary goals.
With a strong focus on numeracy and literacy, our curriculum also provides opportunities for students in performing arts, visual arts, technology, outdoor education and sporting endeavours. We pride ourselves on providing a dynamic learning environment that is constantly under review so that we can ensure we continue to educate according to world-class standards and best practice.
In our secondary school, learning becomes self-directed, with opportunities to select subjects based on specific goals and interests. In addition to taking on core subjects like English, Math, Science, Language (LOTE) and Bible & Christian Studies, students are able to select from specialist lessons in the areas of Art, Music, Drama, Food & Nutrition, Robotics Lessons, Dance, Computing, MDT Metals, MDT Wood, Digital Media, etc.
In upper secondary, students are able to select from a variety of WACE university subjects and TAFE pathways in addition to continuing Bible & Christian Studies, Physical Education and Study skills classes. Our aim is that graduating students leave with a clear pathway for further education and employment.
Guiding and assisting students through secondary school while providing an excellent education is a partnership between staff, students and parents. We welcome open communication and feedback to optimise learning outcomes for all students.
