Senior School

Message from the Senior School

Canterbury College’s Senior School offers students a very broad curriculum, individualised guidance, and a range of vocational, academic and extracurricular opportunities, leading to diverse career pathways.

The College implements a comprehensive one-on-one career guidance program across the years of Senior schooling. The pathways include a rigorous traditional academic program, Vocational Education and Training programs or a combination of both. School-based apprenticeships and traineeships are also available.

The unique Canterbury College Arts Academy immerses talented students in extension and enrichment experiences linked to pathways leading to careers in the Arts. Program partners include Universities, TAFEs and other Training Providers.

Canterbury students gain experiences and skills inside and outside the classroom, through camps, retreats, conferences, workshops and other on-campus activities and excursions that are either academically-focused or part of our rich pastoral care program.

Seniors have opportunities to extend their education by undertaking overseas experiences, representing the College at academic, cultural and sporting competitions and travelling the world on educational and service tours.

Canterbury College Seniors graduate as well-rounded, proud and highly competent individuals who are developing their strengths and are looking forward to successful futures.

By the end of Year 12 expert and highly dedicated teachers and other staff have worked with all students seeking to ensure that they are “happy with where they have been, happy with where they are now, and happy with where they have set themselves to go”.
