Academic Program: Years 7-12
Students study a range of subjects which leads to a Queensland Certificate of Education, awarded by Queensland Curriculum Assessment Authority. This is an internationally recognised qualification. Assessment is College- based in Years 7-10 and then, in Years 11 and 12, there is a model that uses school-based assessment and external assessment. Results of both formative and summative assessment are available to parents through the MyRedeemer Learning Management System.Academic Program Subject Selection Information
