High School Graduate Program

This is our largest group of students. Students coming to Brighton Secondary School in this program are those intending to complete all of their secondary studies and maybe tertiary education in Adelaide or elsewhere in Australia. Students have come from China, Japan, Vietnam, Korea, Hong Kong SAR, Laos and Germany.

An ISEC (Intensive Secondary English Course) program can be offered where students improve their general English language skills while also learning the specialist language of different academic areas. On completion of the ISEC course, students move into mainstream classes with local students while continuing to study EAL (English as an Additional Language).

High School Study Abroad Program

These students come as fee paying students, usually for three, six or twelve months and live in government organised and approved homestay accommodation. Study Abroad students can choose from academic or experiential programs suitable for their interests and needs. Many of our Japanese, German, Swedish, Norwegian, Italian, French, Chinese and Brazilian students come to us under this program.
