Curriculum & Course Information

Year 7-12 Overview

The curriculum at Years 7-9 is designed to provide rich learning experiences in a wide range of areas, thereby preparing students to make objective decisions with regard to their studies in the later years of schooling. Lessons are differentiated, so that all students can experience success in their learning. There is a focus on English, Maths, Science and Humanities. This is complemented with opportunities to study sports, the Arts, Technology and languages.

A Flexible Learning Program is offered at Year 9. This pathway, through to the end of Year 12 (if chosen), provides for these students an opportunity for hands-on learning, an apprenticeship or work. The College offers an exceptionally wide range of programs in the later years (10, 11 and 12), catering for the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) as well as a wide range of Vocational Education and Training (VET) subjects.
