The Curriculum

An education at St Clare’s Catholic High School offers an engaging learning experience within a nurturing Year 7-12 (Year 11 starting 2019) & (Year 12 starting 2020), environment.


Much more than a basic formal curriculum, St Clare’s Catholic High School offers a range of learning experiences that ensure all students are engaged, challenged and stimulated.

Our school strives to provide a rich and diverse curriculum to engage students in their learning. Learning is connected and contextualised through our BYOLT (Bring Your Own Learning Tool) program.

We follow the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) curriculum. And students learn about the Catholic faith and teachings through the Parramatta Diocesan Religious Education program.

In their final year, we prepare students for their future studies, vocational choices and career ahead.
