What is SACE?
The SACE is a modern senior secondary qualification typically studied by students aged 15-19 in their final two years of schooling. The program focuses on developing skills and capabilities that set students up for success at university and in life.
Each year more than 17,000 students graduate with the SACE.
The SACE program is administered by the SACE Board of South Australia, an independent statutory authority of the South Australian Government that provides the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).
Since 1982 the SACE program has been delivered outside Australia and known as SACE International (SACEi)
At the successful completion of Year 12 at PVIS, graduates will be awarded a SACE qualification that will allows entry directly into an undergraduate degree or course at a University throughout the world without having to complete foundation years.
In order to complete the SACE certificate, students are required to complete five subjects in Year 11 and again in Year 12.
SACE International is an internationally recognised pre-university program.
SACE International is administered by the SACE Board of South Australia, an independent, statutory authority of the South Australian Government that is responsible for curriculum development and accreditation, assessment, reporting, and certification for the final years of secondary education using the Australian Curriculum.
International acceptance of SACE International, and the program’s proven track record, have led to an increase in the number of SACE International colleges in Asia.
Australian Tertiary Entrance Rank (ATAR)
Students who successfully complete the SACE will be given an Australian Tertiary Entrance Rank (ATAR), which universities worldwide use to help them select students.
