Ignatius Park College's challenging academic programmes revolve around a recognition that boys think and learn differently from girls. Our curriculum is carefully structured to allow maximum personal growth within an environment tailored specifically to cater for boys' academic development.
We have adopted a range of boy-friendly pedagogies designed to maximise learning in a supportive academic environment. All lessons are structured to include a variety of pace and learning activities, catering for different styles of learning. Student progress and performance is carefully monitored to ensure boys achieve to their potential.
At IPC, the curriculum is structured in two learning stages:
Middle School (Years 7-10)
At Ignatius Park College, students in Years 7 to 10 undertake a program of study to prepare them with the knowledge, understanding and skills needed for work and life in the 21st Century. The Middle School curriculum program is fully aligned to the requirements of the Australian Curriculum and, as such, content includes both knowledge and skills. These are defined by discipline-based key learning areas as well as the general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities which are transferrable across all disciplines.
Students study the Key Learning Areas of:
- Religious Education
- Humanities and Social Sciences
- Health and Physical Education
- The Arts
Senior School (Years 11-12)
Over Years 11 and 12, senior students at Ignatius Park College will generally undertake subjects from the following categories:
- General Subjects

Year 11 and 12 students are provided the pathway to a successful future based on their personal goals and skills. Our College provides opportunities so that boys can go on to further study at university, go on to a trade, or move directly into a career.
