Curriculum Overview

Parramatta Marist High School offers a broad-based curriculum, with a variety of subjects to suit students' needs.


Students are able to select from a range of both academic and vocational courses. Many students at our School also seek to combine subjects from the local TAFE (Technical and Further Education) Colleges.

In addition to traditional HSC subjects, senior students may also choose to undertake industry recognised VET courses such as Construction and Hospitality which gives them the training and experience required when seeking employment in that field. Accelerated study for talented students is offered in Mathematics and Studies of Religion, enabling students to complete their HSC course in Year 11. Support is also given to those senior students who wish to take a flexible path in their studies, allowing them to spread their workload over more than 2 years.
