Dromana College offers a broad and versatile VCE program to cater for the diversity of student pathways. Based on the widely promoted premise that VCE is a University pathway, students can choose VCE studies that provide entry into the full spectrum of University courses. These VCE studies comprise those from the Mathematics and Sciences, Humanities, Technology, Foreign Languages, the Arts and Performance, Health and PE, Commerce and, of course English. All students receive extensive course counselling to ensure that interests and aspirations are understood and used to shape individual programs.
Students have access to VCE studies from Year 10 through our VCE Advancement Program, the purpose of which is to maximise their ATAR score. A range of Vocational Education and Training (VET) programs are also available to complement VCE programs, and VCE students are expected to select VET programs with scored assessment, which make a contribution towards the ATAR. VCE students also have access to University Enhancement Studies which provide both VCE and University credits.
Dromana College students are also in the enviable position of enjoying ongoing support from Monash University through our participation in the Schools Access Monash (SAM) program, which provides University campus tours from Year 8 onwards, Year 12 tutoring and exam revision classes and scholarships, amongst other things.
We believe that our highly successful VCE program and its delivery maximise engagement and student success by offering a wide range of subjects to cater for the needs and interests of all students and ensuring that teachers place their students at the forefront of their practice. Whilst great strides have been made in recent years and outstanding VCE results have been achieved, we will not be deterred from our unwavering focus of striving for continuously improving them.
