Senior Secondary

Grade 10 - Grade 12

Finding your future and inspiring the world

At Senior Secondary, we offer an unparalleled suite of opportunities by integrating an extensive academic, leadership, and career/university counselling program. Most students in their early senior years do not really know what they want to do when they leave school. We believe that the Senior Secondary curriculum should be responsive to student needs and be contemporary to meet the changing demands of our fast-paced global society.

We have taken a deliberate and meticulously considered decision on providing the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) for our senior secondary students. SACE is a well-established and internationally respected and recognized pre-university program that provides entry into the world’s top universities. It offers a broad and diverse range of subjects (+100 Subjects) to match individual student talents and career pathways.


To date, over 40,000 international students have graduated from Secondary education using SACE and have been accepted into some of the most prestigious universities worldwide including Harvard, Yale, Oxford, Cambridge, The Australian National University, University of Melbourne, University of Toronto, University of Paris, University of Berlin, University of Tokyo, Tsinghua University, and the list goes on.

Upon completion of Grade 12, our students receive the official graduate certificate from Australia (SACE) and the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). The ATAR score converts directly into IB DP or Cambridge AS/A Level, US/Canada GPA, or European ECTS scores when our students apply for universities anywhere in the world.

Through the HCIS Senior Secondary program, students are encouraged to strive for excellence as they explore their areas of academic interest and take their best path to success.

Secondary School - Medical School Entrance Preparation Program

HCIS plans to offer a unique point of difference, by working with students in planning and providing a Medical Entrance preparation program, which will be the best program possible.
