Open Access College (OAC) provides external learning experiences and a complete education to a range of students who – for a variety of reasons – cannot attend a traditional school.
Teaching and learning at OAC occurs through:
- a blended approach of online, virtual classroom lessons in small groups
- face to face opportunities eg workshops, excursions, camps, laboratory sessions
- access to year level and subject specific web sites
- custom designed support materials.
External education may be suitable for:
- a rural and remote student whose home is geographically isolated
- a student who is unable to access a government for various reasons, including travelling, vocational study, work commitments or medical conditions
- a student wishing to access a specific subject not available at their current enrolled school
- an adult student aged 18 years to under 21 years wishing to complete their studies
- a student who has a current exemption from school for home education.
Refer to the full list of enrolment criteria here.
OAC has two campuses:
- Marden Campus catering for students from reception to year 12, and adults
- Port Augusta Campus catering for reception to year 7 students who are geographically remote.
