The senior phase of learning continues the learning focus and will deliver successful pathways to industry, further education and employment. Year 10 provides the foundation for Years 11 and 12 through a futures curriculum comprising General, Applied, Applied (Essential), Individual Achievement Subjects, and Vocational Education and Training. Each senior student at Merrimac State High School is working towards the attainment of either their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) or Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement (QCIA). Students can focus upon tertiary entrance through the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) or they may choose to explore and negotiate a range of earning and learning career options tailored to individual needs.
