Curriculum

Catherine McAuley Catholic College ensures its students comprehensively meet mandatory NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) requirements. Additionally, the College also provides students with individual choice, particularly in Bathu Endeavour House (Stage 5), which is outlined in more detail in the myARC section of the website.  We believe it is essential to support student passions, interests and strengths and the curriculum provides an excellent opportunity to do this.
