GOAL College is an independent senior high school based in Sydney where students complete a non-ATAR Higher School Certificate (HSC) alongside vocational education.
We know all students have the capacity to learn and grow, and we also know that traditional classrooms don’t work for everyone. This is why we run an active and engaging non-ATAR HSC that allows our students to learn in a way that works for them.
At GOAL, we recognise that success looks different for everyone. We value personal growth alongside academic learning, and help our students prepare for life after school.
Here’s what you can expect from us:
- We take the pressure out of the HSC
- We prioritise personal growth and take an individual approach to learning
- We provide opportunities for our students to explore and find out what they really want to do after school
- We take our students out of the classroom and let them learn in different settings
- We are proudly and deliberately non-ATAR
Our students join a class where their classmates all have a shared interest.
We offer the following HSC Courses:
- Football (Soccer)
- Rugby League
- Rugby Union
In addition to graduating with their HSC and two TAFE-level Certificate IIIs, our students also have amazing experiences while they study with us. Our sporting stream classes have access to sporting ambassadors with high-level playing experience, a wide range of work placement opportunities, guest presenters, weekly sport training, and a strength and conditioning training plan.
At GOAL, our small classes stay together as a group over Year 11 and 12. Each class has a Lead Teacher, who is on hand to help their students develop the skills they need to prepare for their future. Lead Teachers act as a support person and cheerleader for their students as they explore, learn through their experiences and discover their own paths. Importantly, our students don’t need to be elite athletes or the next Mary Poppins to study with us. All that we ask is that they are open to a new way of learning.
