Teaching & Learning


Caritas College provides a comprehensive, seamless Reception to Year 12 education. Many students experience all of their primary and secondary schooling at Caritas College, and many are welcomed as they join our learning community at different times throughout their schooling years.

Context for education at Caritas College in the Josephite tradition:

  • Excellent education that is dynamic, relevant, engaging and contextual, and develops holistic perspectives
  • Inclusive curriculum, accessible to each student, that allows for different learning styles and abilities, and which is responsive to the needs of groups and individuals
  • Nurturing a learning dream with young people to discern and contribute to the world through the love and service of others in order to create socially just futures.
  • Learning that enables all students to realise their full potential, and which leads to a full range of post-school pathways.
  • Religious Education, Positive Education and Child Protection Curriculum are explicitly taught and integrated across curriculum areas.

At Caritas College we prioritise literacy and numeracy as fundamentals of learning. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and vocational learning skills and aptitudes are incorporated across R-12 learning experiences, as well as delivered as subjects in their own right.

Religious Education is integral to learning at Caritas College, being taught as a subject across all year levels and complemented as a perspective incorporated across curriculum. The formal RE program is based on the Religious Education Framework for SA Catholic Schools: Crossways, including Made in the Image of God curriculum.

Caritas College focuses on the nine key learning areas as a part of its curriculum: Religious Education, Arts, English, Health & PE, Humanities & Social Sciences, Languages, Mathematics, Science and Technologies.

Religious Education is taught using the Crossways Religious Education Framework.

Other learning areas implement the Australian Curriculum (refer http://www.acara.edu.au.) 

At Stage 1 and 2 subject outlines are determined by the SACE Board of South Australia (https://www.sace.sa.edu.au/ )
