Victoria University Secondary College is a co-educational government Year 7-12 college with a Junior Campus, Senior Campus and Trade Training Centre. Our vision inspires students to ‘Create the Future’ and our college values ‘Aspire to Achieve’, ‘Strengthen the Community’ and ‘Respect Ourselves and Others’ support and guide all we do at VUSC.
New 7-12 school facilities are currently under construction at our Cairnlea campus and will open in 2022.
At VUSC we believe all students can succeed with effort and persistence. Our teaching and learning framework is based on a synthesis of worldwide educational research. Our evidence-based teaching practices and strategies establish safe, purposeful and inclusive classroom learning environments while providing the individual behaviour and learning supports needed to achieve academic and social success for all students.
Our focus on Literacy and Numeracy has seen student outcomes increase significantly over the last few years. Support is provided at all levels and high achieving students are challenged and extended with our SEAL and Deep Learning acceleration programs. Parent and staff opinion of the college is overwhelmingly positive and student attitude surveys show that students feel safe, are motivated to learn and they believe teachers help them learn to the best of their ability.
The College offers a rich program of learning and extra-curricular activities catering to all students’ interests and abilities, including Music and Concert Band, Performing Arts, Sport, Rugby League, Debating and Leadership.
It is pleasing that on average 99% of our students receive an offer at either university or TAFE. Our graduating students pursue careers in Biomedicine, Engineering, Law, Accounting, Building, Education, Finance/Commerce, Computer Science, Media/Music, Nursing, Science and Youth Work as well as others.
However, our focus begins in Year 7. From day one, we will teach your child how to aspire and succeed.
We invite you to book a tour to see our classes in action and look forward to you joining our exciting community at Victoria University Secondary College.
