A full academic program is offered from Kindergarten to Year 12, with progressive learning and skill development each year, leading students to confidently sit examinations for the award of the Year 12 Higher School Certificate.  The Bible curriculum and Studies of Religion are regarded as being of special importance in nurturing the Christian growth of our students.

The Junior School curriculum is organised into nine Key Learning Areas (KLAs).
