Curriculum

The academic curriculum is broad and challenging. Students are able to complete the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) or undertake Vocational Education and Training (VET) pathways.

The academic curriculum comprises a comprehensive selection of electives in Year 10, and over thirty subjects for SACE Stage 2 (Year 12). Our Year 12 students are treated differently from all others. They are allocated a Study Day once a fortnight, a number of study lessons during the week, and, within policy guidelines, are entitled to attend school only for their lessons, some of which commence at 8.00 am.

While the majority of our students will progress to university, or some other form of tertiary education, some will pursue other pathways. At St John's Grammar opportunities exist for combining study at school with a work placement, or TAFE enrolment. A number of students take up this option in Year 11, while playing a full role in the life of the school, and in House activities. All Year 10 students take part in Work Education and in a Work Experience placement.

Our senior students are actively encouraged to continue their involvement in sport, and other co-curricular activities. We believe that by providing these opportunities our young adults grow in school spirit, teamwork, maturity, independent thinking and in social responsibility. At the same time they develop loyalty to their school, and to their peers. The School embraces a learning charter which incorporates methodologies and pedagogies for different learning styles, that develops learning-to-learn skills in students and classroom strategies that enhance students taking responsibility for their own individual learning.
