Logos for Schools offers study in Philosophy and Ethics for high school students. Students are eligible to apply to participate at the completion of Year 10 through to Year 12.

Each unit is endorsed by the Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES) as a 1 Unit Preliminary course for the Higher School Certificate (HSC); however, results from the course will not contribute to the calculation of the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).

Students who successfully complete a unit are eligible to apply for advanced standing for that unit in the core curriculum in any undergraduate degree offered by the University of Notre Dame Australia.

The unit in Philosophy spans the history of the tradition of philosophy, introducing students to fundamental philosophical questions and arguments regarding the nature of thinking, reality, truth and the human person.

The Ethics unit will introduce students to the discipline of ethics, the key ethical theories (especially natural law theory, virtue ethics and deontology), practical decision making and moral evaluation.

Studies of philosophy and ethics aim at developing skills in critical and creative thinking, the analysis and development of reasoned arguments and clarity in writing.
