Catering for student choice
Students have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of VET and VCE subjects. Most students undertake enrichment and extension subjects. Students are supported by an extensive Careers program.
VCE Acceleration Program
At Year 10 students can participate in the VCE Acceleration Program by completing VCE Units 1 & 2. Students apply to undertake extension studies in subjects which interest them.
Eligible Year 10 students have priority in the following subjects:
