The Three Pathways


The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) is the qualification which most students receive on completion of their secondary education, and provides diverse pathways to further study at university, TAFE or in employment.

We provide an extensive selection of VCE subjects, from which our students are able to create individual learning programs that suit their passions, interests and future career plans.


For a VCE curriculum to be comprehensive, it must cater for all of a student’s needs. In order to achieve this, we also provide an additional VCE pathway via our VCE/VET program.

This allows students to undertake Certificate II and III level courses within their VCE studies and graduate with both a VCE Certificate (including an ATAR score) and a nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training qualification.

International Baccalaureate Diploma

Think Beyond Traditional Learning

As an alternative to the VCE or VCE/VET programs, students can choose to achieve their ATAR score via the two-year International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. Ideally suited to motivated, individual thinkers, the IB Diploma encourages individual learning that enables students to fly far and wide, providing them with a standard of education that’s recognised at universities across the globe.
