The Senior School at Craigieburn Secondary
College comprises Years 11 & 12 and students within the senior school are
considered role models in terms of their conduct, work ethic and attitude. It
is an expectation that our senior students exemplify our College Values of
Respect, Responsibility, Achievement and Community.
From Year 11 onwards the senior students
have access to a broad and flexible learning program that is based around their
interests and future pathways aspirations. Student choice and expert pathways
advice are considered in customising each student’s individual program.
We are proud of our broad, rigorous
and versatile VCE program which caters for the diversity of pathways of our
students. Predicated on the widely promoted premise that VCE is a University
pathway, Craigieburn Secondary College students can choose VCE studies that
provide entry into the full spectrum of University courses. These VCE studies
comprise those from the Maths and Sciences, Humanities, Technology, Foreign
Languages, the Arts and Performance, Health and PE, Commerce and of course
English. Extensive course counselling for all students ensures that interests
and aspirations are understood and used to shape individual programs.
VCE students also have access to University Enhancement Studies which provide both VCE and University credits. Craigieburn Secondary College students are in the enviable position of enjoying ongoing support from La Trobe University and the University of Melbourne, which provides University campus tours, tutoring and exam revision classes and scholarships amongst other things.
We believe that our highly successful VCE
program and its delivery maximise engagement and student success by offering a
wide range of subjects to cater for the needs and interests of all students and
ensuring that teachers place their students at the forefront of their practice.
Senior students are also encouraged to participate in a range of extra and
co-curricular activities to complement and enhance their studies and provide a
balanced and rounded educational experience.
The Craigieburn High Achievers Club (CHAC) program is also available at the VCE level and now in its seventh year at the College. The program offers exceptional value for money, an opportunity to focus on achieving excellence through interaction with like-minded students, and exposure to a range of seminars and speakers to provide practical assistance in achieving personal best.
Any student who wishes to maximise their ATAR score is eligible to join. To find out more about the CHAC program - click here
