Faith Christian School of Distance Education provides senior secondary courses that prepare students for tertiary study, employment, and life opportunities. Our school subjects have met and continue to meet Queensland requirements of the Senior Learning System.
Faith senior students have the option of choosing General Subjects, Applied Subjects, Vocational courses and other QCE-recognised studies. This allows for a mixed course, giving choice and diversity for the range of prerequisites required in tertiary study.
Whether Year 11 & 12 students want to choose an ATAR pathway or gain a QCE, Faith offers accredited courses taught through a Christian worldview.
Faith is an accredited Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and we are qualified to offer the following Faith-created courses.
Faith students in Year 10 take 3 Core subjects, plus 2-3 electives of their choice. VET courses are also available from Year 10.
Senior students with a disability can engage in individual programs through Faith to earn a Queensland Certificate of Individual Education (QCIA).
As your Future Pathways Officer, my job is to assist Year 10-12 Students with creating personalised learning pathways.

Enrolment time has some flexibility. You are best to contact the Future Pathways Officer and talk through your student’s current situation as many options are available. Note that ATAR pathways are a bit more rigid.
Yes, Faith students can do courses through organisations such as TAFE. TAFE offers courses that students can do while at school. This is known as ‘Tafe at School’ Program.
This varies from subjects to subject. Generally there are main lesson/s, recorded for later reference and group tutorials for extra help as needed. Most lessons are live online. Some subjects have workshop days (such as Biology, where the practical components are completed). Students at Faith are required to complete a SETP (Senior Education and Training Plan) with the Future Pathways Officer, study at least 4 courses and aim to achieve a QCE with at least 20 credit points by the end of Year 12. Graduation is available to any student who completes their study regardless of achieving a QCE or ATAR.
We hold a Graduation Ceremony and Formal at the end of each year for our Year 12 students. Graduation is held in Brisbane and is an amazing chance for students to be recognised for their achievements throughout their time at school.
