Centralian SC was established in 2005 and occupies the former Sadadeen High School building officially opened 19 October 1979. With approximately 450 students Centralian SC is co-located and works cooperatively with Charles Darwin University (CDU) to provide quality educational programs and services. Centralian SC values underpin all our work and are as follows: Centralian SC is the largest senior secondary education provider in Alice Springs. The College motto is for “excellence in all that we do”. We believe that a student’s success is dependent upon maximising their learning within the ‘Instructional Core’. This instructional core is the connection between teacher, student and learning. Linking factors include the:
- student’s community connections to family and culture.
- teacher’s relationship with the student.
- teacher’s skill to develop the right learning programs.
To this end, Centralian SC has a team of highly skilled professional and dedicated staff who are offering an extensive range of vibrant courses for students in Years 10 to 12. Our programs are delivered within modern facilities with cutting edge technology, which provides our students with the opportunity to build their own personal learning plan, with real pathways into the workforce, further training or higher education.
Centralian SC has maintained a well deserved reputation for success over many years, with students and staff achieving outstanding results in many fields. Results for students in previous years were exceptional and highlights include:
- ATAR average is maintained above N.T average
- Regularly have the top Indigenous student in the N.T
- Every year we have students ranked in the N.T top 20, with the top 1 in 2010
- Stage 2 results include many students achieving perfect scores
- Indigenous NTCET completion rates are significantly higher than nearly all other schools in the N.T
We also encourage and value student involvement in extra-curricular activities. Students can participate in a wide range of sporting activities, student leadership opportunities, science, mathematics and technology competitions, Wearable Arts competition, art exhibitions, drama productions, study tours and camps. The package of programs provided at Centralian SC aims to develop each student’s self worth and to instil a desire for the pursuit of excellence. It also aims to provide students with a sound basis upon which to make realistic choices in their post-school life.
The learning journey for each senior secondary student is an exciting one and all the staff at Centralian Senior College look forward to sharing in and supporting your son or daughter’s journey.

Dear parents & community members,
Our 2018 school year has had a busy start. Thanks to all members of the College community for your support of our recent Whole School Professional Development Day. Staff worked with visiting Senior Years Team curriculum officers to ensure their learning plans and associated assessment tasks supported students to optimise their achievement in Stage 2 / Year 12 courses. Professional learning from this day will flow through to Year 10 and Stage 1 courses.
Students have been reminded of our heading towards young adult behaviours in allowing students to bring mobile phones to College and only use them during recess and lunch break times. During class time, College expectations are that mobile phones are to be away and on silent during class / lesson / learning time, including change of lesson, unless the classroom teacher has given specific instruction to utilise student phones during learning activities.
Work Completion Reports for all students are being posted home with this newsletter. These reports show whether students are up to date with completion and submission of their work and the standard achieved. Please discuss these with your child and contact your child’s mentor or subject teacher if you have any queries. Mentors are discussing these work completion reports with students, in their role of monitoring academic progress.
