Overview

Classic High School is the traditional high school program that most students choose. This is the perfect choice for students who want a genuine exchange experience. We match you with a carefully selected host family and high school in Australia. You can be placed in a bustling big city, charming coastal town, or on the countryside close to the nature. This is the program for you that are open-minded, and excited to try new things. It doesn’t matter which of our exchange programs in Australia you choose, you will be staying with a caring Australian host family. Your host family will introduce you and give you a close insight into the Australian culture.

All our families look different – some live in the city or on the countryside, others by the coast, some have children, others do not. What they all have in common is that they are excited about welcoming you into their home and their Aussie lives.

Academics

Years 11 and 12 enable students to develop the necessary skills and knowledge they need to successfully complete the NSW Higher School Certificate (HSC).

The HSC is a two-year program with assessment tasks in each subject and practical work for some subjects and a final external written examination, in each course, at the end of Year 12.

Students must complete at least 12 units of preliminary courses (Year 11) and 10 units of HSC courses (Year 12), including English. Most HSC courses are worth 2 units each. Students typically study a minimum of six subjects in Year 11 and continue with five of these subjects in Year 12.
Compulsory Subject

English (Standard or Advanced) or English as a Second Language (ESL).

A wide range of subjects are available in the NSW curriculum, including:

  • Ancient or Modern History, Business Studies, Creative Arts (Dance, Drama, Music, Visual Arts), Economics, Engineering Studies, Food Technology, Geography, Legal Studies, Mathematics (with extension subjects available), Personal Development, Health and Physical Education, Science (Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Science, Physics), Software Design and Technology, A wide choice of languages

Co-curricular activities

Government schools offer a range of extra-curricular activities for students.

The program encourages in particular international students to take part in these activities available at their school. Joining extracurricular clubs and sports teams is a great way for students to enrich their high school experience, as well as make new friends with similar interests.

The selection of extracurricular activities offered at our schools is different at each school, and may change from year to year.
