Academic Program

All year levels provide studies in the 8 learning areas – English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Languages, The Arts, Technology, Health and Physical Education. Study in Australia commences each year in late January or early February. There are four academic terms with a two-week break between each term. The academic year finishes in December and students have a 5-6 week Summer vacation.

Program Years 7 – 9

While the majority of our international students enrol in the Senior School (Years 10-12), some students who come to Australia with their parents are enrolled to begin study in Year 7. The program for Years 7 and 8 is a core program with a diverse curriculum. Year 9 students also have a core program and start to focus their learning by choosing electives in their fields of interest. There are many activities and camps in the Junior School which assist students in adapting to life in Australia and getting to know local students.

Program Years 10 – 12

Most of our international students enrol in Year 10 prior to completing the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) which will lead onto Tertiary study. Students who enrol during Year 10 have more time to adjust and master English before beginning VCE study. Year 10 is considered to be a preparation year, where students can select electives that suit their interests and prepare them for their chosen field of study. In Year 10 students study English or ESL, Mathematics and ten semester-long elective subjects.

Year 11 and 12 students can study VCE or VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) and can include a VET (Vocational and Education Training) subject as part of either Certificate. VCE is a requirement for entry to tertiary study whereas VCAL and VET are focused on vocational training. Camberwell High School offers a comprehensive selection of subjects in these years and students have many choices available to them. International students should note that VCE is a two-year certificate.
