The Hubbard's School educational program is recognised as an alternative, differentiated, rigorous academic pathway for senior school students. This pathway and pedagogical approach is tailored to prepare and support academic students to complete year 12 through external senior examinations in preparation for future tertiary studies.
This pathway also enables students who require a flexible education program to cater to their personal situation. Students can tailor their individual educational program by selecting from one to five subjects during the year. Some of the reasons that students choose this pathway include: heavy training schedules in sports, dance, theatre and music, accelerated or differentiated learning styles, and unique medical circumstances
We look forward to working with you!
Hubbard’s School aims to deliver a challenging and rewarding curriculum in a nurturing, academic environment. We do this by providing a positive education experience which gives each student the opportunity to experience breakthrough success.
Our ethos is to strive to reignite each student’s personal learning journey by helping them to:
- Reignite their passion for learning
- Reimagine their learning strategies
- Realise their learning goals
We aim to facilitate the development of our students to become independent and confident learners who contribute to society in a positive manner.
We champion “U-centric” learning focused on the personal strategic achievements of our students.
The student-centred approach to education at Hubbard's School is critical to the way it operates as a learning organisation. The smooth transition from the Hubbard's School academic program into University, TAFE, or the workforce is made possible through a focus on establishing quality relationships with students.
Hubbard's School staff and teachers work in partnership with parents and students to assist students to achieve their full potential. A focus on personal strategic planning helps our students gain the confidence and skills they need to be successful.
This Alternative Academic Program caters exclusively to senior school-aged students. Students enrolled in this option complete each senior school subject in one scholastic year; not over two years as is the norm in mainstream schools.
This program prepares students for success at the tertiary level with:
- an academic focus
- considerable personal freedom (and consequent responsibility)
- a balanced lifestyle.
Hubbard’s School University Prerequiste Courses form part of the Certificate IV in Adult Tertiary Preparation (10397 NAT). These courses are conducted at the school. Separately, the subject areas satisfy the prerequisites for courses requiring a Sound Achievement at Year 12 level at most Queensland universities. Students have the responsibility to confirm this with the university prior to enrolment.
