Middle School – Years 9 & 10
At Year 9 students are looking for a greater level of engagement and opportunities to develop their personal skills and interests.
We focus on providing students with opportunities to become independent learners who can use their initiative, explore, take responsibility and engage with the community.
A state of the art Flexible Learning Centre is exclusively utilised for Year 9 students at the College. The college provides broader elective choices, an integrated program combining core curriculum, research and applied learning outside the school campus Students work on inquiry based projects in RAPPs (Research and Presentation Projects). These programs nurture the mind, foster individuality and enable students to set and meet goals.
Year 10 students are encouraged to explore their opportunities in tertiary education, workplace or applied learning experiences.
In addition to the core subjects of English and Mathematics, the choice based elective program provides pathways to Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) and Vocational Education & Training (VET) and further study or employment.
Students can pursue avenues that connect with Year 11 and 12 studies and course counselling is tailored to student needs and helping them determine their aspirations and goals. This includes Managed Individual Pathways (MIP’s) which provides students with career and pathways guidance.
Higher achieving students can fast track their VCE studies through an Accelerated Access program.
A Year 10 certificate course (Pre Cal) provides students with an applied learning pathway leading to a VCAL course study.
