Senior schooling at Yeronga State High School begins in Year 10. Every student is engaged in the 'business of learning'. We offer a wide range of subject choices and options for our students. In 2013 our efforts were recognised when we took out the 2013 State Showcase award for excellence in senior schooling. In 2015 our industry partnerships were recognised when we were made State finalists in this category.
In Year 10, accelerated learning pathways are undertaken by identified students. They begin their Senior Phase of Learning Program early by participating in Queensland Studies Authority (QSA) subjects which allows students to earn QCE credits and engage in early entry courses at QUT, UQ, USQ and Griffith University. To allow for the diversity of students, we encourage students to select the pathway most suitable for their language learning and development. For some, this involves completing Certificate III courses leading to alternate entry pathways to universities using selection ranks or TAFE enrolment. Our Senior Education and Training Planning (SET-P) process is rigorous and is designed to ensure all students work to attain an individualised Quality Pathway to Success.
In Years 11 and 12, students continue their journey towards attaining a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). The qualification is internationally acknowledged and recognises the broad range of learning, including senior school subjects, vocational education and training (VET), workplace and community learning, and university subjects undertaken while at school.
