Our Senior Secondary School
PVIS is now a SACE International Centre with the endorsement to deliver the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) over a two year period.
SACE International is an internationally recognised pre-university program administered by the SACE Board of South Australia.
Students who successfully complete SACE International are accredited with the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE), an award that is recognised within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). Students are provided with a university aggregate score (out of 90) and an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). The ATAR is a percentile ranking that is recognised without modification by all tertiary selection agencies in Australia and is used by universities around the world for entry selection purposes.
Stage 1 (Year 11) classes have commenced in 2018 and Stage 2 (Year 12) will commence in 2019.
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.
