Students can move easily from their own national curriculum to the SACE using our Pre-SACE program.
Pre-SACE, which can be done in Year 10, helps students build the skills and knowledge to move into the SACE.
This curriculum focuses on developing English-language and academic skills across all subject areas.
The delivery structure and timeframes are flexible meaning this could be used as a 3-month intensive transition program or delivered across the full academic year to suit the needs of students and schools.
