Senior International Program

Our new Senior International Program (SIP) is available to international students interested in academic-only schooling (no Performing Arts/Elite Tennis training) with additional ESL support integrated into the student timetable.

Once enrolled students will study the New South Wales Australian Curriculum through to the international credential of the NSW Higher School Certificate. English language assistance will be provided in these classes through our ESL program according to your need.

Unique to The McDonald College and in addition to the Australian Curriculum, students will study carefully tailored English Language classes for two hours every day. These classes are additional to the NSW Australian Curriculum and are meant to prepare spoken language and writing abilities to assist with secondary studies and higher education entry.

This is the only program in Australia with a dedicated ten hours per week of additional English language and literacy support. The aim of the course is to prepare international students for completion of the Higher School Certificate and their journey toward tertiary studies. The course is over and above the normal tuition provided during the course of study to Higher School Certificate.

This course is subject to enrolment numbers.
