senior college

The Senior School experience at ACC is designed to be a capstone experience for students, giving them the opportunity to study different topics, develop their leadership skills and prepare for the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).

Students in Year 10 study Maths, English, Science, History, Christian Living, HPE and Sport. The following electives are also available to Year 10 students: Business Studies, Community Outreach, Drama, Information Technology and Visual Arts.

In Years 11 and 12 students can study Maths, Prevocational Maths, English, English Communication, Ancient History, Biology, Physics, Business Communication Technology, Physical Education, Art, Technology, Recreational Studies and Bible. Additional university and VET subjects are available through third party providers.


We’re serious about preparing our students for tertiary pathways and we expect the same attitude from our students. In some ways, they have been preparing for the rigours of Senior College since Year 7 when they began sitting for formal examinations and presenting assessment tasks.

The QCE is an important milestone for many students, but it shouldn't define a student's identity. The great weakness of the examination process is that it tends to reduce students to a single OP score. If you get a high OP score, you “will” be successful in life. We work really hard to discourage this kind of mindset in our students.

Our Christian ethos tells us that God has a plan for your life and that plan may or may not include a high OP score. We also celebrate character and attitudes as defined in our ACC Learner Profile, which recognise that success in life is far more complicated than a single OP score.
