High School Entry Requirements for International Students
The High School Preparation Program is for those students who have not reached the entry requirements for the John Paul College Middle School or Senior School.
On arrival, students are placed in classes according to placement test results. To progress to the next class, students must attain the appropriate bandscales set by the College. Students have continuous assessments throughout the term, which produce a final report at the end of term. Students are assessed in each of the language macroskills: Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing, as well as Maths and Science. Progression to John Paul College is dependent upon successful completion of the John Paul International Preparation Course and an interview with the relevant Head of School.
