The college continues to build on its reputation for academic excellence and has received recognition for the increased number of students gaining university entry and the increasing number of academic awards and scholarships won by students. The High Achievers Program is now established and designed to provide support structures for raising standards, encouraging advanced learning as well as enhanced range of extension options.
The college has incorporated a co-ordinated career awareness and planning process into the student learning program from Years 9-12. This includes the Pathways Program at Year 10, all Year 10 Students are enrolled in Unit 1 of VCE Industry and Enterprise, and the Extending Choices Options which allows students to easily access VETIS programs. The intensive counselling process enables us to individualise programs that best suit the preferred pathways of students either through the VCE program or the VCAL program depending on their chosen career pathway.
We achieve outstanding results in placing our students into their tertiary and post compulsory courses and training of their choice and which suit their passions and aspirations.
