At our College, we are committed to a quality, first-class education that encourages its young people to develop the skills required to thrive in an ever-changing, global community.

We foster strong, positive partnerships that put the student at the centre and believe learning is maximized when it takes place in an environment enriched with high expectations, personalised learning, challenge, inclusion and support.

Regardless of the academic pathway chosen by the student, we take pride in helping our students to develop solid core values, and an appreciation of the world around them.

Our teams work collaboratively across the College to ensure that the curriculum is delivered in a consistent student-centered format which allows students to learn, consolidate and build on their understandings to become confident learners.
Additional support is available to students to revise concepts or to further extend their knowledge, this ensures every opportunity is given to all students to achieve their potential.

Officer Secondary College offers select entry programs beginning at Year 7.

Students who show high academic aptitude and have high academic aspirations are encouraged to apply for our High Achiever Program (HAP). HAP is an enhancement program designed to foster 21st Century leaners, with a focus on accelerated learning, collaboration, critical-thinking and creativity.

The Performing Arts Masterclass (PAM) provides students with the opportunity to be part of an Academic and Performing Arts Masterclass program. The College has a strong music, dance and drama program, and aims to engage student interest allowing every child to showcase skills in these areas.

The STEM Academy offered at year 10 provides a high quality pathway for students with various interests. Students who demonstrate high academic ability and a penchant for problem solving and creative and critical thinking are well equipped to succeed in this program. This program provides direct links to a science, mathematics and engineering pathway at VCE.

The Year 7 Growth program implemented 2023, on the back of COVID lockdowns has identified the need for a program that supports students entering the college with some gaps in their learning. The Growth program is a class where a significant emphasis is put on ensuring student learning growth being the primary focus.

We firmly believe in the capacity of young people to change the world, and the significant role education has in influencing lives and providing opportunities for a successful future. We look forward to discussing how our College-and its community-can support your child in their educational journey.

Applications , handbooks, and further information is available on our College website.

We look forward to welcoming you to Officer Secondary College.
