Assumption College

A LOVE OF LIFELONG LEARNING

HIGH ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS

At Assumption College, we are committed to a curriculum that enables our students to be successful learners in a rapidly changing world dominated by digital technology. Therefore, personal computers and array of online resources are invaluable to our learning and teaching program.

We believe in a growth mindset where students know that they are in control of their own destinies and that through hard work and perseverance – especially after making mistakes – they will become smarter and succeed academically.

Students have access to all areas of the Victorian curriculum:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Humanities
  • Health
  • Physical Education
  • Language
  • Visual Arts
  • Media
  • Performing Arts
  • Technology

Our broad curriculum allows students to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to enter the next phases of learning and life.

Year 7 focuses on breadth and balance. Students are encouraged to explore a wide range of subjects guided by their interests, talents and goals alongside advice from parents and school mentors.

During years 8 through 10 the focus shifts to our dynamic myMap program – personalised learning where core classes are combined with electives.

This approach empowers students and allows them to explore pathways towards senior school certificates.

HIGHER EDUCATION STUDIES

A Higher Education study may contribute towards satisfactory completion for the award of the VCE as an unscored Unit 3 and 4 sequence. Students who successfully complete a Higher Education study have the title of the study, the year of enrolment and the Higher Education institution name reported on their VCE Statement of Results.
