Senior School (10-12)
Helping students to become independent, resilient & empathetic
The Mount Clear College (MCC) Senior School aims to offer students emotional and intellectual support so that they can take personal responsibility for their learning.
As students progress from Year 10 through to Year 12 and out into the community, they are encouraged to take up the many opportunities offered by the College to assist them in becoming independent, resilient and empathetic young adults.
Our college provides students with the opportunity to undertake the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) and Vocational and Educational Training (VET).
Year 10 students study subjects based on a core/elective system.
The core subjects covered are English, Maths, Humanities and Social Sciences, Science, Health and Physical Education, The Arts and Technology. There are choices of electives within the Science, Health and Physical Education, The Arts, Languages and Technology areas. Students can also choose three extra electives over the year from within the eight key learning areas, according to their interests and potential pathway.
Students who have a particular passion for a subject or who have identified their pathway to their desired future at the end of Year 9 may elect to “fast track” their course. The students can elect to either begin their VCE in Year 10 by selecting a Unit 1 and 2 subject, or begin their pathway to an Apprenticeship, Traineeship, or alternative TAFE course by selecting a VET subject.
Whilst undertaking Year 10, all students are encouraged to explore their post-school opportunities and to take advantage of both our work experience program and our Amazing Race Camp in Melbourne.Year 10 Course Guide
