Cabra Dominican College Established 1886

Senior School


The Senior School curriculum encourages all students to strive for excellence by opening new vistas and widening the educational opportunities for the large range of student abilities that exist within and across Year 10 through to Stage 2 (Year 12/13).

There is an emphasis on diversity, flexibility and specialisation.

  • Diversity is achieved through course content, alternative assessment procedures and an increased variety of subject options, both full year and semester.
  • Flexibility is achieved through the opportunity to study full or part time, personalised timetabling (which includes the possibility of incorporating subjects across different year levels - for either academic extension [acceleration] or consolidation) and semester studies.
  • Specialisation occurs for those students wishing to proceed with pre-University or Vocation orientated subjects and/or courses.

In all Senior School programs a greater degree of personal choice and student accountability is implied.  Our strong focus on the pastoral care of all students is maintained by counselling and support available through the Year Level Co-ordinators and Class and Subject Teachers, in addition to the School Counsellor, Careers Counsellor and Deputy Principal.
