Suzanne Cory High School is Melbourne’s first selective high school situated in the western region. We offer an outstanding education to a diverse pool of talented students across the city.

Established in 2011, the school provides highly able students with an individually challenging educational experience leading to outstanding outcomes and pathways into tertiary education.  The school has a total enrolment of 800 students from Years 9 to 12 coming from 84 different schools of origin, with government and non-government schools equally represented from the surrounding suburbs, and across greater Melbourne. Admittance to the school is via an entrance exam, conducted by the Department of Education in June of each year.

The educational focus of the school is to provide a challenging and rigorous academic curriculum for students who are gifted and talented in conjunction with a rich co-curricular program to extend their learning.

Suzanne Cory High School has established partnerships with The University of Melbourne and Victoria University to enable students to access facilities, programs and academic staff.

The school has been purpose built with state-of-the art teaching and learning facilities, and an enviro-centric design drawing on educational research and environmental sustainability principles. In partnership with Victoria University, students of Suzanne Cory High School have access to an all-weather athletics track, sports field and the university indoor fitness centre.

The comprehensive curriculum and teaching and learning model practised within the school is based on internationally recognised best practice research on high levels of student learning achievement, and a range of co-curricular opportunities exist to further extend student development.
