Additional Costs for Subjects

The material and/or services related to SACE Courses are covered by the Material and Services Fee (ie School Fees). However, some subjects offer students the opportunity to undertake practical experiences which enrich the learning outcomes for students and these may incur additional costs which are not covered by the Material and Services Fee.

Please read the subject choice information carefully to identify the full costs associated with these. NOTE: Should there be outstanding monies owed to the School, students may not be permitted to be enrolled in subjects or VET courses where there are significant additional costs. 

Subject Opportunities

If you have not met one or more of these prerequisites at the time of subject selection you will not be able to enrol through our web preference system.

Add a Title

The South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) is generally based on two years of full-time study, but students may take more than two years. There is no time limit to complete the SACE but there are restrictions regarding Tertiary Entrance.

Questions should be directed to the Senior Campus Deputy Principal, Mr Brent Bloffwitch or Learning Community Leaders, Ms Margarita Paleologos (Laslett) and Mr Matthew Camerlengo (Campbell).

Promotion to Stage 1

Promotion from Year 10 to Stage 1 is automatic if a student gains an achievement level 4 or better, in the majority of subjects that lead to Stage 1. Students who do not attain this level of achievement will be required to undertake a ‘Bridging Course’ in Semester 1 of Stage 1.

Most subjects in Stage 1 require successful completion at Year 10. Learning Area staff recommendation and a Level 4 or better, is the achievement level that qualifies a student for automatic promotion into the same, or related subject, at Stage 1 level. Other subjects without prerequisites may be taken through negotiation with the relevant Learning Area Coordinator.

Course planning and subject choice will be guided by the work undertaken in the Personal Learning Plan (PLP). It is important to understand that some university courses have prerequisites that must be met at Stage 2 and in turn these Stage 2 subjects may have prerequisites at Stage 1.
