Well-known and safe
Your teenager deserves to be in a safe and supportive learning environment that sees them thrive. From the first day of high school, each Year 7 student is closely supported and kept accountable to their learning goals by a member of our welfare team.
Your child will belong to a small group of friends that meet with their assigned group mentor three times a week, to ensure each of them is known and valued, organised and making progress toward their goals and the academic requirements of the College.
This helps each student develop positive, respectful relationships and fosters a culture where they feel valued and connected.
Your child will find themselves in a research-backed wellbeing program that teaches and models highly practical strategies that help them to navigate and thrive during their teenage years.
Learning is our focus
The goal is for your child to be well-known, safe and supported so that quality learning can take place.
Each student at ACC Singleton has a clear plan mapped out for their learning success. This plan is backed by research that outlines how students learn and what sort of teaching gets results.
When you join us for a tour of the Senior School classrooms you will see the consistency of teaching strategies, well-managed lessons and highly engaged students.
As a parent, you will experience timely and transparent communication from the school. You will know about your students learning success and if there are any blocks to learning. This means you are well-informed about your child’s progress and performance.
