At John Curtin College of the Arts, we acknowledge that academic excellence presents in many forms. Our Gifted and Talented Arts programs provide rigorous academic courses of study in the arts for students identified as gifted in the creative domain and our Football Specialist program provides opportunities for identified students to excel in the psychomotor domain.
The College also invests in all our students’ pursuits in the cognitive domain through the learning areas of Mathematics, Science, English and Humanities and Social Sciences.
We strongly believe that academic success is about more than a number. We take our greatest pride in our students leaving us as confident, compassionate individuals who are committed to lifelong learning.
