Middle Years (Years 6 - 10)

Our Secondary Years students continue to follow the Australian Curriculum standards, taught through the IB Middle Years Programme methodologies, providing both academic rigour and a focus on skills development.

AISPP offers a balanced curriculum in the Middle Years, with students taking equal amounts of academic subjects, sports and arts. Learning standards are mapped against the Australian Curriculum, with students guided to meet these standards through inquiry based lessons. Our focus is on making teaching and learning accessible, practical and useful in today’s world, always with students’ future pathways in mind.

Timetabled classes are supported with Study Skills and Service as Action sessions which develop a range of academic, leadership and practical skills.

Senior Years (Years 11 - 12)

Senior students are able to choose between a range of graduation options: 

The IB Diploma – This internationally respected programme is a highly rigorous, academic course. It is recognised and accepted for entry to universities worldwide. Students choose six subjects which they study across two years. 

IB Courses and High School Diploma – Depending on academic ability and/or choice of university programme, some students will select to graduate with a High School Diploma. Any IB subject courses that are completed are awarded Certification by the IB.

The 4th IB Programme, the Career-related Programme (CP), will begin in August 2021 at AISPP in partnership with 2 world renowned universities – Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU). For certain subjects, it is possible to complete university courses while still in high school at AISPP. 

For students wanting careers in any area of art and design, the partnership with SCAD is a unique opportunity. Our AISPP Students will join Freshmen University students through SCAD’s online platform and spend around 50% of their time in lectures and seminars with some of the world’s leading professors. 

For those wanting involvement in the aeronautical world, ERAU is the best place to earn your wings! Founded in 1926, ERAU is the world’s oldest, largest, and fully accredited university specialising in aviation and aerospace. Our AISPP Students will have an opportunity to study with  expert professors who have decades of industry experience.

By selecting the appropriate courses and maintaining solid grades, students will be able to complete their first year of university studies during Years 11 & 12 of High School – saving them a whole year of study time.
