Narrabundah College

Welcome from the Principal

Narrabundah College is a large, international college which offers students the opportunity to study the ACT Senior Secondary Certificate, the International Baccalaureate Diploma, the French Baccalauréat Diploma and VET courses.

The college has an established tradition of success and offers a broad and academically rigorous curriculum that is carefully designed to enhance students' skills in research, critical thinking and communication in a focused and supportive environment.

Our programs have a global emphasis that extends students. We resource significant leadership opportunities for our students to develop them as confident leaders and contributors to our globalised world.

Narrabundah College, recognising the special needs of students in the challenging senior secondary years, places an emphasis, under our Curriculum of Giving Framework, on providing a safe, supportive and caring environment that fosters each student's creativity and personal growth.

Our Student Services team consists of four Student Advisers, a Transitions/Careers Officer and a psychologist who all work with the students and their families to provide continual course and career counselling. They also monitor and support students in their welfare, academic progress and student pathways planning during the two years they are at college. Our national award winning Peer Education program, with trained student leaders, supports our students’ health and wellbeing programs.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma has been offered at Narrabundah College since 1978 to meet the needs of an international college community. Students can undertake this internationally recognised program while studying for an ACT Senior Secondary Certificate.

The French Baccalauréat Diploma is a two year program as part of the French Australia Bilingual program. Students sit for external exams set in France.

Please contact the college for further information.
