High School Australia - System

Australian high school system

Each state and territory in Australia has a different high school system designed for the final 2 years of school.

However, what they all have in common in that at the end of two years, students are required to sit exams and in some subjects, additional physical or performance exams.

After all the exams are completed, each one is carefully reviewed by a selected group of markers. After the marking process, students are given an ENTER score. This score, usually comprising of 2 digits and 2 decimal points, places them in a ranking system, compared to every other year 12 student in their state. 

When applying to universities, these scores pay an important role in judging who is admitted and who is not. University courses such as law, medicine, and engineering require quite high ENTER scores, admitting a very small number of the students eligible for the course.

Private high schools are categorized either by religion: Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran etc. or are academic schools: Boys/Girls’ Grammar. There is also a range of other co-education and boarding schools available Australia wide.

Private high school fees range from 2000$AU per year to 15 000$AU. To ensure a place at a private school, it is important to put your name on the waiting list early. Some children are signed up for their high schools at birth! The private schools do have their own criteria when allocating places, for example the family being members of the parish/or of the same religion as the school.

Scholarship places are offered, some are an exam, and others are on merit or talent. Beware! In some cases there are yearly exams which need to be passed each year to secure the continued scholarship
bursary.

Both state and private schools do offer fairly similar subjects however, some schools do tend to lean toward academic learning whilst others offer more vocational and practical classes. Second languages are typically Asian languages.

  • How do they work toward each child reaching his/her own potential?
  • Most Australian high schools aim to cater for all types of learners and abilities.
  • Discipline and strictness varies, some schools are by definition the ‘tough’ high schools.

What differentiate schools are the unique cultures, philosophies, learning environments and facilities, especially sports and computer facilities.

Typically there is a tendency for schools to rely on parent participation: help with tuck shop, excursions and fund raising, in some cases, for even some basics equipment such as air conditioning.

Parents also do need to equip their children with uniforms, sports kits, books and lunch.

Australian High Schools are typically resourceful and can point you in the right direction if your children have adjustment difficulties, learning difficulties, behavioural adjustment issues or you need more family help.

High School Programs Australia

Our Australian high schools have a range of programs specifically designed to meet the needs of international students with the ability to individually tailor student programs and achieve an international recognised high school certificate.

High School Australia Programs

Programs at Australian High Schools

Australian high schools provide several programs to international students. Depending on the duration and destination, the right school program is chosen for you.

Study Abroad: The classic school exchange, where students attend a high school of between 3 and 12 months in Australia. The Study Abroad program or exchange program offers international students the opportunity to attend a public or private high school in Australia. The scheme involves more than 200 high schools across Australia. International students take part in normal school life and are fully integrated into Australian school life.

Study Abroad Regional: Exchange students attend high schools outside major cities for 3 - 12 months. If you don't move to the city, Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia can also visit dreamlike destinations and excellent schools in Australia outside major cities. These high schools are grouped together in Australia to form the Regional Study Abroad program.

School certificate: International pupils can also earn a school degree-similar to the high school diploma or the Matura-in Australia. As an international student, you have the opportunity to earn an internationally recognized school degree at an Australian high school. However, you absolutely must check the recognition in your home country beforehand. You need at least 1.5 years to complete a degree, so you have to get started in 11th grade at the latest. You should be between 12-18 years and be in at least 8th grade.

International Baccalaureat: Selected high schools in Australia offer this internationally recognised school degree.

Elite program: Some Australian high schools have special priority programs-especially in sports and music-that go beyond the usual scale and involve particularly intense training.

Some high schools in Australia are more selective in their student intake and place more importance on academic or sporting excellence. 

Australian High School enrolments may be limited simply because of the availability. Parents should also consider the culture and extra curricular activities of each school-as they differ widely, particularly in the private sector.

There is one more thing that you need to know before you decide on Senior Secondary Education in Australia:

If you come from a non-English speaking country where English is not the language of instruction, you will need to show proof of proficiency in English before beginning your studies. 

You can either take an English course within the school that you have chosen, or join one of the English schools around Australia.
