What is PLC Pathways?

PLC Pathways is a boutique, residential intensive English language (ELICOS) and cultural familiarisation program within PLC Armidale girls' school, for Middle School aged international students, providing pathways to further Australian education at high school and university. As of 2019, we will also be offering the unique Pathways program for boys at Scots All Saints in Bathurst.

Operating as an independent but interrelated part of PLC Armidale and Scots All Saints campus located within the Colleges, PLC Pathways utilises our extensive facilities and resources to provide the highest quality to a new group of international girls and as at 2019, for boys in Bathurst. 

PLC Pathways students will be part of the PLC Armidale and Scots All Saints school communities - wearing the uniform, joining the school for Chapel, Assembly and dining, and studying within the precinct alongside the main student body.
