Woodcroft College, an IB World School
As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, Woodcroft College offers the Primary Years Program (PYP) in the Junior School, the Middle Years Program (MYP) in the Middle School, and the Diploma (DP) in the Senior School. Senior School students may also choose the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) with its Vocational Education and Training (VET) pathway.
The school aims to provide students with an excellent, all-round education in a Christian environment. The curriculum is broad and relevant, aimed at meeting the students’ intellectual, physical, social and emotional needs.
The school has a strong pastoral care focus, a broad extra-curricular program (involving outdoor education, sports, clubs, and performing arts) and an international focus, with annual student exchanges with Japan, Germany and Italy.
Our students are our greatest ambassadors.
Our staff are committed to ensuring that every child achieves their personal best. Through the benefits of the International Baccalaureate Programs, your child will be encouraged to take risks and acquire the lifelong skills of an independent learner. They will be encouraged and supported to excel in their studies, both personally and academically.
The Junior School (Reception to Year 5)
The Junior School provides young learners with the opportunity to learn and practise the essential social, emotional and problem solving skills they will need throughout their schooling. A major focus of our school is to develop positive self-esteem, helping young children feel confident about who they are, and to encourage them in their ability to take on the challenges of new learning in a caring and nurturing environment.
Our Junior School is committed to laying a solid foundation to support all students in their learning throughout their educational journey from pre-school to Year 12.
The Middle School (Years 6-9)
The Middle School is committed to supporting young people through their adolescence. With a global perspective, we encourage them to discover, explore and engage in their learning and to take supported risks with their learning. We cater for a wide range of student learning needs and offer students a wide range of academic experiences that will help them develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need for their Senior School years and beyond.
Our Middle School is committed to encouraging all students to achieve their personal best.
The Senior School (Years 10-12)
The Senior School is committed to nurturing the synergy between student, home and school. Effort, resilience, drive and grit are qualities developed by highly committed and encouraging staff to ensure that each student achieves their personal best. Students are encouraged to unlock their passions and interests, and pursue their individual strengths. Extensive subject selection and career counselling are offered to each of our students to ensure they are well aware of their options and post-school choices.
Our Senior School is committed to providing students with a holistic education, great opportunities, and a head start in life.
Woodcroft students are able to access a world-quality education.
They are supported in a very professional and collegial environment; the staff care about them and beyond that they have wonderful opportunities in many local, sporting and overseas programs. The world is at their doorstep.
People sometimes ask the question: Why Woodcroft? A better question is: Why not? The curriculum is internationally-recognised; the focus is student-centred; the pastoral care is outstanding; the extra-curricular program is broad; and a sense of community is ever-present.
