Senior Secondary

Pathways...

Year 11 and 12

Students in Year 11 and 12 are provided with a wide variety of subject choices within the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).

The academic program is tailored to meet individual needs, abilities and goals of senior secondary students.

A strong learning environment is encouraged in the St Martins Lutheran College senior years. Study across year levels is not uncommon. A caring environment, increased responsibility and independence are all features that encourage success in these vital years of secondary schooling.

St Martins is committed to providing individual pathways for students leading to further study or to a vocational program. Until the end of Year 10 students experience a broad general curriculum based on the Australian Curriculum. Thereafter, students’ pathways are individually negotiated and are as unique as the students themselves.

In addition, students who elect to take up distance education opportunities are assigned a staff tutor to assist them with this study opportunity. Students who would prefer to take a vocational pathway are able to access the Trade Training Centre at St Martins as well as facilities in other schools.

Senior Secondary Curriculum

Students are allocated to a homeroom class for morning roll, devotion and Pastoral Care sessions. The subjects English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities are aligned to the Australian Curriculum with the SACSA framework providing guidance for other curriculum areas.
