The College community would like to congratulate the Year 12 class of 2017 on the success achieved throughout the year.
2017 Performance Data Snapshot
Established in 1997, Cedar College is a ministry of CityReach Baptist Church, and is an independent R-12 co-educational Christian School in Northgate, South Australia.
Below is an excerpt from our current round of reporting. The data below was collected via survey of our staff, students and parents for the year in which survey was published. The complete 2017 Performance Report can be downloaded from our website.
The 2017 School Year
During 2017, we increased our partnerships with other Christian schools, hosting a number of events that have focused on Christian leadership. It has been encouraging to see our High School Prefects and Student Leaders take on increasing responsibility for their school. This has been evidenced during Chapel times, service activities and community involvement, both locally and overseas with our Thailand Service Trip.
Our entire staff works very hard to create a positive environment, where every person’s unique strengths and talents are celebrated. We have a culture of high expectations for students and staff alike, and it is our sincere goal that each and every one of our students will graduate with a plan for the future and with the skills necessary to be successful in anything they choose to do.
I trust that 2017 has been a significant year for each student as they let God play a prominent role in giving then wisdom, direction and strength in all that they do. We can summarise by proudly standing behind our motto: Discover Jesus, Display Love and Develop Self.
During the 2017 School Year, our student enrolment peaked at 823. Of this number, 380 were enrolled in the Primary School (R-6), 251 in the Middle School (7-9) and 192 were enrolled in the Senior School (10-12).
Academic Performance 2017
18% of our graduating Year 12s achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of greater than 90, and 46% of our students achieved an ATAR of 80 or more, placing them in the top 20% of students in the State. To have 46% of our students placed in the top 20% of South Australian students is an amazing achievement.
With 96% of Cedar College students who applied for a university course receiving a first-round offer, (70% received their first preference). We are pleased to see our graduates choosing to pursue a wide range of high-level tertiary pathways.
We are very proud of the outstanding results that our Year 12s have achieved, and feel extremely blessed to be part of a school community where students can fulfil their God-given academic gifts, and progress to exciting post-school opportunities and pathways. Cedar College is committed to preparing students for Tertiary Education. This includes University, as well as other suitable career pathways.
The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLaN) assesses all students in Australian schools in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. Cedar College publishes NAPLaN results in the complete 2017 Performance Report available for download. NAPLaN results are also available in full from the MySchool website.
