Senior School

All students are guided through their decision making about VCE or VCAL. The yearly counselling with the students looks at what will be the best outcome for success for the individual.

Students are encouraged to follow the best pathways for their needs e.g. three year senior school plan, dual enrolment in a VET and VCE, unscored VCE pathway, scored VCE pathway or VCAL. We believe it is important to tailor the senior years to give all our students the best chance of success and look after their wellbeing.

Please refer to the 2018 Student Subject Handbook for more information about our courses on offer.

Alternative Entry Pathway Programs

Students in the seniors years at the school can apply to participate in the Alternative Entry Program. The program provides suitable applicants with a guaranteed pathway to university with no ATAR.

Extension Programs

Extension programs at tertiary institutions are designed for high-achieving year 12 students who are looking for an academic challenge. Programs allow students to complete university studies alongside their final year of secondary schooling.
