Loxton High School offers the Regional Study Abroad Program to overseas students. This study and cultural experience program offers a unique opportunity to engage in both educational and community activities, while embracing the Australian lifestyle in the scenic Riverland region of South Australia, just three hours away from the city of Adelaide.

International students come as fee paying students, usually for 1 to 4 terms and live in local, school approved Homestay accommodation. Loxton High School manages its own Homestay program. Host families are carefully screened and selected by our International Program Manager who ensures that the best quality of care and safety is provided at all times.

Regional Study Abroad Program students up to Year 10 will study the Australian Curriculum, which is designed to cater to the specific academic needs and interests of students and guide them towards their ideal future pathway.

The core learning areas are English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, The Arts, Languages, Health and Physical Education and Technologies. A broad range of specialised subjects and special interest programs within the core learning areas are also available which challenge students to develop essential skills and capabilities.

Students in Years 11 and 12 will study the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE). The SACE is an internationally recognised qualification awarded to students who successfully complete Years 11 and 12 in a South Australian high school. The SACE is divided into Stage 1 and Stage 2. Visit the SACE website for more information.

Students can also participate in a range of extra-curricular activities including sport, the volleyball program, musical, music band, Maths and Science competitions, debating etc.
