Nazareth College offers six years of comprehensive post-primary education to all students. Subjects undertaken in Years 7 to 10 are designed to prepare students for their entry into the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE).
Nazareth College’s Years 10 to 12 curriculum focuses on each student’s personal pathway. The curriculum and pastoral care programs cater for a diverse range of needs and interests and ensure access to further study, training and work.
The curriculum at Nazareth College therefore has the essential features of a comprehensive curriculum in the Catholic context. It has breadth, balance, coherence, continuity and inclusiveness, whilst promoting a sense of life-long learning in our students.
Year 7 and Year 8 are crucial periods of learning for all students, as the foundations are developed for an effective and successful education in senior years. Literacy and Numeracy are two key elements for optimal learning outcomes for students, and the College provides strong programs in these key areas to ensure that each student reaches their maximum potential in all areas of study.
Students are exposed to a wide variety of subjects in Years 7 and 8 across all disciplinary strands within the Victorian Curriculum, in order to provide students with breadth of curriculum. Students complete studies in the core subjects of Religion, English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Languages, and Physical Education. In Year 7 students choose the Languages they wish to continue studying in Year 8 and beyond. Additionally, students study electives in the areas of Arts and Technology.
