ET Australia Secondary College’s Mission

ET Australia Secondary College (ETASC) is an independent Years 7 to 12 high school that equips students with the literacy and numeracy skills to be successful in employment and/or further study by delivering the mainstream curriculum in a safe and supportive learning environment.

What Sets Us Apart

Your child’s education is a vital investment in their future. With 91% of our 2020 graduates engaging in further studies or a career, you can be confident ET Australia Secondary College will equip your child with the skills to be successful in employment and/or further studies.

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, PDHPE and Creative Arts. Each student has access to text books, work books and a 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. Download the Info Pack for a full list of inclusions
