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,
We hope you and your family continue to be well. Students, staff and families are to be congratulated on their resiliency and flexibility in continuing student learning, either through attendance at school or following our learning at home arrangements over the last few weeks.
With there being no recorded cases of community transmission of the Coronavirus in the NT, we will be transitioning back to face to face teaching and learning classes for all year levels at the beginning of next week.
From the start of Week 2 Term 2 - Monday 27 April 2020, all Year 10 – 12 classes will recommence face to face lessons at their usual scheduled lesson times. Some room changes will be required and some practical learning activities will not occur or be modified.
We encourage all students to attend in person and participate in all classes, however we also understand that some families will want their children to remain home. Students staying at home should continue to maintain regular contact with their teachers and College staff. This will assist them to progress their learning and not fall behind in their studies. Parents are requested to notify the College of students staying at home via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, text message: 0427 135 122 or phone: 8958 5000, as per usual student attendance / absentee procedures.
