Sudurnes Comprehensive College was established in 1976 in collaboration between the State and the municipalities of Suðurnes. The school has a modular system, and is progressive, offering a diverse curriculum in both classical and vocational education for students over 16 years of age.

Sudurnes Comprehensive College is roughly comparable with tertiary level schools in Britain and the last two years of High School and the first  year of College in the United States. The diploma received after completing the academic field of studies qualifies students for entrance to Icelandic universities and is recognized by most European and North American universities.

Sudurnes Comprehensive College is organized on a unit-credit basis. The school year is divided into two terms of 15 weeks each plus two weeks of examinations (terms run from August through December and January through May). Most academic courses are five credit courses.
