Craigieburn Secondary College offers a broad and versatile VCE program to cater for the diversity of student pathways. Based on the widely promoted premise that VCE is a University pathway, students can choose VCE studies that provide entry into the full spectrum of University courses.

Senior School

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.

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 eleventh 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
