Advantages of the High School program
The Taylors College High School program offers you a comprehensive range of key benefits and advantages.
1. Wide range of courses
You can study a wide variety of subjects to achieve your academic qualification. In Years 11 and 12, there is a choice of subject areas in addition to core subjects. Assessment is by a combination of course work throughout the academic year and final exams.
The formal qualifications achieved at the end of the program allow you to apply to any university you want.
2. A flexible approach to the curriculum
Students have the advantage of being able to adapt the standard curriculum to their individual needs in a way that is not possible in the normal State model. If a student needs help on a particular area of study extra tutorial sessions can be build into the standard timetable.
3. Free tutorial and mentor groups
Free tutorials are timetabled daily for each subject. Tutorials allow students to gain extra help from teachers, on an individual or small-group basis. Each student is also assigned a mentor who is trained to support students' academic development and personal well-being
4. Study Guides
Taylors provides comprehensive booklets which guide students through the content of a course. They are provided for each subject and give students details of curriculum and assessment tasks, supplementary course materials, learning support, additional exercises, practice exams and much more.
5. Individual assessment throughout the year
Throughout the academic year, students achievement is carefully monitored and students are given regular feedback on their progress. Assessment is through a combination of course work, tests and examinations.
6. Recognised by Universities and employers internationally
Taylors College state qualification programs (HSC, TEE and VCE) are all recognized internationally.
This means that the qualification is ideal if you wish to attend university in a country other than Australia. Our students have gone on to study in many countries including the UK and USA.
In addition, these state qualifications have credibility with countless employers around the world. They are seen as the Gold Standard for school level academic qualifications in Australia.
7. Our students achieve great results
Every year, Taylor College students achieve excellent results which enable them to realise their dreams of a place at the best universities in Australia.
We are proud to be judged by the results and achievements of our students.
