Scared Heart Girls College Oakleigh

Curriculum at Sacred Heart

Years 7 and 8

Girls in Years 7 and 8 are offered a broad and relevant curriculum that engages their academic, spiritual, social and personal development. Our priority in these transitional years is to build upon their primary experience in order to develop breadth and depth in their knowledge and skills. This is achieved through a more expanded curriculum that supports the girls in developing critical thinking and analytical skills, and an understanding of increasingly complex concepts.

Years 9 and 10

As they approach the middle years, adolescents are keen to explore their future. They seek greater independence of thought and interests, and are interested in deepening the connections between their learning and its application to their world. Greater choice is the hallmark of the middle years as the girls begin to pursue their interests, strengths and goals. While the girls continue to undertake studies within core subjects, they also have the opportunity to experience a wide range of elective options and engaging learning experiences as a precursor to the senior years.

Years 11 and 12

Our Years 11 and 12 girls are committed to achieving their personal best and are encouraged to pursue their passions and strengths. They can choose their program from an extensive range of VCE studies which can be augmented with Vocational Education and Training courses, such as Hospitality, offered in conjunction with a range of TAFE institutions. Acceleration options enable our highly able girls to undertake Yr 12 subjects in Year 11, and for some, to also incorporate Extension (University level) subjects into their final year.
