The Thebarton Senior College Special Interest Academy enables students to complete SACE and/or VET qualifications at the same time as pursuing their own passions and interests, be they entrepreneurial, dancing, sporting or performing arts.
Students are supported to complete the SACE compulsory subjects and achieve extra SACE credits that recognise their individual interests and pursuits. Students may also select from a broad range of curriculum offerings, depending on their training and/or course commitments.
In the Special Interest Academy, we recognise that all students' needs are different. We work with individual students and their families to ensure students can achieve their SACE and pursue their special interest.
Curriculum delivery is flexible and is delivered face-to-face and online. Most importantly, this program allows each student to have a range of future pathways beyond their special interest - in further education, training and work.
For students under 16 years of age: students must be a minimum of 15 years of age as at 1 January in the year of enrolment, however it is Principal discretion on whether a senior secondary environment would best suit the student.
For interested students, we also offer SACE Stage 1 and 2 Dance in the twilight time slot (4.00-7.00 pm once per week or 3.30-5.00 pm twice per week). Please see the Twilight Classes page for more information and to express your interest or enrol. All SACE subjects at the college are $100 per year.
