The Senior School of Calvary Christian College encompasses Years Ten, Eleven and Twelve, some 280 students with four classes in each year level..
Calvary Christian College offers over thirty subjects to Year Eleven and Twelve students, access to university and distance education subjects, TAFE partnership programs, school-based traineeships and apprenticeships, work experience and work placement as we seek to cater for the range of ambitions of the students in our community.
In Year Ten students continue their elective studies from Year Nine and begin to encounter more specialization in the Sciences and Mathematics in preparation for their Year Eleven and Twelve studies. During the course of Year Ten students also develop their Senior Education and Training Plans as they orient and ready themselves for life beyond schooling in light of their God given talents and sense of calling.
Senior School students belong to one of four sporting houses which form the basis not only of intra-school sporting competitions but the Pastoral Care structure. Each year level is overseen and supported by a Year Level Coordinator and four Pastoral Care teachers.
A range of curricular and co-curricular activities, including Calvary Business Week, camps, musicals and films, sheep showing, sporting teams and opportunities, debating, Amnesty, music ensembles and worship team, provide diverse opportunities for students to explore and express their gifts and talents.
As students progress through their Senior Schooling they are encouraged to discover and grow in Christian faith, honouring God as they pursue personal excellence in all that they do, as good stewards of the richness of God’s blessing and in serving our community. Students have opportunities to serve through formal offices of leadership, as Pastoral Care Mentors, through the Sports and Representatives Councils, as helpers and mentors in the Junior and Middle Schools and serving in the broader community.
Just as it is the intention of Calvary Christian College that students learn in the light of Christ, it is also our hope that our graduates will live in the light of Christ It is our hope that the young men and women who graduate from Calvary Christian College will have as their foundation a deep, transforming relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and that through this relationship they will discover and develop their sense of identity, worth, belonging and purpose.
