Listen to what ET Australia Students and Parents have to say:

A Safe and Supportive Learning Environment

With a no bullying policy enforced by teachers, a student learning support network, literacy and numeracy action plans for each student and individual student pathway plans ensuring each student who graduates is professionally guided towards a career in the workforce or further study, your child will not slip through the cracks at ET Australia Secondary College.

A Student Focused NESA Approved Curriculum

With an academic focus on literacy, numeracy and work ethic, students enjoy learning the fundamentals of Mathematics, English and Science taught alongside the subjects of Languages, Technology and Applied Studies*. Each student has access to text books, work books and an College iPad for each student in class to support their learning requirements.

Highly Qualified Teaching and Support Staff 

Our highly experienced and well regarded teaching team have worked in a number of different educational settings all over the world. Our teachers deliver quality and specialised teaching across all key learning areas. Together with teacher assistants in every class, our team draw out the best academic results possible for your child.

Students are Treated as Individuals

We empower students with a balance of freedom and responsibility. The school is more like a contemporary workplace – everyone, teachers and students alike, are known to each other on a first name basis, students don’t wear school uniforms, there is no homework, our students are young adults and we work harmoniously with them focusing on teaching and learning.

Our Learning Support Network

Provides our students with one on one tailored learning opportunities delivered alongside classroom teaching with a dedicated learning intervention teacher. Our students can also engage in free after school tutoring with their teacher which we hold at the college in a safe and supportive after school environment giving students the opportunity to catch up.

Access to School Scholarships for Students

ET Australia Secondary College awards a number of scholarships to school students attending the College. Scholarships are awarded to students due to financial hardship and can cover up to half of a student’s annual school fees. Scholarship applications are a relatively simple process, and the majority of scholarship applications are successful.

One School Fee Covers Everything

School fees at ET Australia Secondary College are all inclusive – textbooks, workbooks, stationery, school locker, an Apple iPad for each student, excursions, sporting fees, on-site youth support services and after school tutoring – all included. The school fee is packed full of added value reducing the stress on your hip pocket. View the College brochure for a full list of inclusions.

Preparation For The Real World

ET Australia Secondary College is focused on equipping students with the skills to be successful in school and after school. Many of our students go on to complete their Higher School Certificate (HSC) at other local high schools, while other students choose to enrol in adult training courses and/or start their professional career by gaining employment.

  • Cannot speak highly enough with one child in Year 10 and another just starting Year 7. The support ,values and new modern innovative way of learning has made my children excel, all high schools would have more success with students and have our young engaged more in learning if they also learnt the ET way. Thanks to the amazing team at ET Australia Secondary College for allowing this opportunity to see my children grow in a positive encouraging environment.

  • We didn’t know what to expect from this school and whether to believe the parent testimonials about the school. We love it. The testimonials are true. The school has helped Will so much. He enjoys coming to school and has greater opportunities to learn.

  • Just wanted to tell you how happy Zoe is at ETASC and how much she enjoys going to school! She hasn't said a negative word about it and is really happy with the friendships she has formed. Zoe was very excited yesterday afternoon to tell me about the school sleepover later in the term. Thank you very much for giving her the opportunity to go to ETASC, it's literally a life changer for us all!
