South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)

Students have the opportunity to complete their Modified SACE at Adelaide East Education Centre. Students are offered a Modified SACE curriculum structure that best meets their learning needs and the requirements of the SACE Board of SA. The Modified SACE Curriculum enables students with a range of physical, cognitive and sensory disabilities to demonstrate their learning in a range of subjects.

Requirements of SACE

There are two stages of the SACE:

  • Stage 1, which usually begins in Year 10 with the Personal Learning Plan, and continues through Year 11.
  • Stage 2, which is usually undertaken in Year 12.

Each subject or course that is successfully completed earns ‘credits’ towards the SACE.  To qualify for the SACE students must: complete a minimum of 200 credits which are gained over 3-4 years.

All students at Adelaide East Education Centre access a SACE curriculum that is developmentally appropriate and personally challenging.
