We recognise that students on their Senior Learning Journey are growing in maturity and are approaching young adulthood, ready to flourish as independent learners. At St Columba College, our Senior Students are given the opportunity to take ownership of their learning to aid in preparation for life beyond Secondary School.

Our approach of threading together Faith, Learning and Wellbeing creates a strong sense of engagement and a genuine desire to learn. Highly qualified specialist teachers, across a broad spectrum of curriculum offerings, are passionate about Senior School learning. They work closely with students to fosters creativity, curiosity, collaboration and respect. Our academic programmes support students being stretched in their learning aiding them in achieving individual excellence.

St Columba Senior School caters for all learners as they complete their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE). While most of our students aspire to university, learning can also be structured for SACE students to undertake Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses along with their studies. This allows all in our learning community to be prepared for further study and the world of work.

The vertical composition of our Pastoral Care system allows all Senior Students within our community to have a place where they are valued, have a strong connection with others and a sense of purpose at school and in the wider community. Our wellbeing programme centres on positive education, allowing each student to see their strengths and purpose while catering to the changing needs of emerging adults. The programme centres on the importance of optimism and self-belief which prepares all our students to confidently take on the challenges of life beyond the gates of St Columba.
