The South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) is a modern, internationally-recognised secondary school qualification designed to equip students with the skills, knowledge, and personal capabilities to successfully participate in our fast-paced global society.
Students are awarded the SACE if they successfully complete requirements that include a range of skills and subjects they may study at school or may have acquired through other education, training or experience.
The SACE has traditionally been a two-stage certificate in Senior School with most people studying Stage 1 in Year 11 and Stage 2 in Year 12. Many Immanuel students will however, choose to undertake one or two Stage 2 subjects in Year 11 to expand their opportunities and give better academic outcomes.
Each subject is worth 10 credits per semester. Students need 200 credits to complete their SACE. Some of the credits will come from compulsory requirements, but most will come from the subjects they choose to suit their interests and future goals.
