Kormilda College is unique in the Northern Territory because a choice of courses is on offer in Senior Years.
We are proudly an International school, accredited with the Council of International School (CIS) and can offer both the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years (MYP) and Diploma (Senior School) Programmes to our students. In the near future we will also be accredited to offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP) to our students. We offer these programmes because we believe that they provide a well-rounded holistic education for our students.
Within the Senior School, choice and opportunity comes from students being able to choose between two courses on offer in Years 11 and 12; the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme and the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET). The NTCET is an adaption of the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).
These senior level courses provide students with variety and choice and offer a pathway to University study. The IB Diploma is an internationally recognised pre-University course, and the NTCET also allows pathways into Higher Education at university, VET and the workplace.
Many universities offer subject credits in the first year of a university degree if a student has completed and gained their International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB-DP).
Year 11 and Year 12
Research shows that students who select a pathway that is of relevance to them are much more likely to engage positively with learning in Years 11 and 12. Decisions about pathways for students start with conversations about the student’s interests, passions, strengths and values.
