Curriculum - Learning @ the Senior School
Our Vision for Learning
Sacred Heart College has been formed by the Marist Charism of trust in God. In the tradition of Saint Marcellin Champagnat, the College promotes a love of learning and the personal growth of each individual within a co-operative and supportive community.
The Senior School aims to meet the educational needs of all students in Years 10 to 12. To this end, we are committed to providing a broad and meaningful curriculum designed to promote a love of learning and the education of the whole person, enabling the spiritual, intellectual, cultural, physical and social development of emerging adults.
