Stage 6 Curriculum

Year 11 & 12

There are two areas of compulsory study at La Salle Academy (Religious Education & English).

Students will then choose from a number of electives to meet the requirements for their HSC.

The calculation of units for the HSC, the requirements for an ATAR, options around vocational education (VET), school based apprenticehips/traineeships are all discussed in length with students and parents through our Year 10 'Successful Pathways Plan'.   La Salle Academy is committed to working collaboratively with students and parents/guardians to choose the right senior schooling options that meet the students career needs/pre-requisities, student interests and student capabilities.
