During the tour, visitors will discover the academic programs and co-curricular opportunities offered by the college and see the building progress on the $7.5 million Performing Arts Wing that is due to be completed in late 2021.

 

Prep to year 12

Junior school consists of students from prep to year 4. Staff members are committed to providing a high-quality education and the college offers a broad, balanced curriculum to ensure all students develop their individual abilities. Students also enjoy the small class sizes and community atmosphere where new experiences, challenges and friendships flourish.

Middle school consists of students from year 5 to year 9.

“Our unique programs are intended to optimise the social, emotional and academic capabilities that our students need to acquire in order to be successful in school and beyond, experience wellbeing, and have positive relationships that include making contributions to others and the community,” the college said.
Senior school consists of students in years 10 to 12.

Students have the opportunity to complete their Victorian Certificate of Education, a school-based apprenticeship or a level II certificate in a trade. This allows all students the flexibility and choice to customise their programs to meet their own aspirations and abilities.
