Curriculum Outline

The Senior School at South Oakleigh College comprises Years 10, 11 and 12.

South Oakleigh College provides all students with My Careers Portfolio counselling so as to inform their Senior School subject and career choices. At the conclusion of senior schooling they are assisted with VTAC applications and the pursuit of their pathway, be it University, TAFE, employment or other.

We have high expectations of all our students, encouraging them to perform at their academic best whether they are going to University or accessing other pathways. South Oakleigh College offers a truly innovative VCE Program across the three levels. Years 10 & 11 students study VCE Units 1 & 2 subjects and Years 11 & 12 students study VCE 3 & 4 subjects.

Apart from Study Scores and ATARs this system offers genuine acceleration and enrichment opportunities for all, as well as an opportunity for students to complete the VCE over three years.
