An integral part of enrolling at St Francis Xavier's College is the requirement to study a Religion Course.

Students have the choice of selecting a Board Developed Course - which can contribute to an ATAR - Studies of Religion 1 or 2 Unit or a Board Endorsed Course - Catholic Studies.

Studies of Religion 1 and 2 Unit


For Whom is the Subject Intended?

These Courses offer the opportunity of studying religion as an academic subject at the HSC level. As a HSC subject, Studies of Religion requires a consistent effort and commitment. Both courses have specific Assessment requirements and procedures and involve both an external examination and internal assessment as with other HSC subjects. Students should be aware that Studies of Religion is an academically rigorous subject, and is similar in nature to Modern History, Legal Studies and Ancient History.

Students need to be very competent in English to be successful in the course.
