International Students

Brisbane Adventist College has a long association with international students. Students study at BAC for 40 weeks every year, five days per week; beginning at the end of January and finishing in early December when there is a long summer break of approximately eight weeks. 

Included in the College year are two semesters of 20 weeks each; four 10-week terms with approximately two weeks' holiday in between.

Learning at BAC is highly interactive. Students are encouraged to participate, acquire knowledge, and develop problem-solving skills and thinking. They are required to demonstrate this through discussions, speeches, assignments, essays, and exams. The wide range of subjects taught at BAC provides a sound foundation for further study. The key learning areas are English, Mathematics, Science, Arts, Studies of Society and the Environment, Technology, and Health and Physical Education. Electives are offered in Secondary that lead toward university and vocational options after school. 

Parents can expect three reports on their child's academic progress throughout the year. An interim report is issued at the end of Term 1 and gives parents an indication of whether their child is making satisfactory progress or not. The Semester 1 report is issued halfway through the year and gives grades for each subject for the first six months of the year. The Semester 2 report is issued at the end of each academic year, giving overall grades for each subject for the entire year.
