Emerald Secondary College offers a quality secondary education. Our college is proud of the Strategic Direction which is driving forward the core mantra to provide ‘Access to Excellence’.  Students are surrounded by a natural environment which enhances their educational experiences in purpose-built buildings and supported by a committed and passionate staff.

The College supports a professional learning environment that builds staff capability and adds growth to both student and staff outcomes. Emerald Secondary College’s Instructional Model has been embedded and aims to empower staff and students to continue to develop Learning and Teaching outcomes ensuring consistency between classes and the use of High Impact Teaching Strategies. The College offers a comprehensive curriculum from Year 7 through to Year 12 with a student focused pathway approach supporting each student’s interest, ability, and aspiration for the future. This is enhanced by an additional acceleration pathway that can allow students’ access to University Courses at school to complement their Year 12 program.

Our college has a strong history of academic success with a high proportion of students being accepted into university or other tertiary institutions. We offer an extensive range of VCE courses in the Senior School complemented by vocational education opportunities including VET, VCEVM and VPC. In the Middle School, we provide a diverse range of electives for our students to choose from, carefully crafted, research based, that offer specialised learning and engagement.

We are also proud to be an accredited Select Entry Accelerated Learning Program (SEAL) school for academically talented students from Year 7 onwards.

Our students are at the core of everything we do. We endorse and encourage student voice and agency, with a healthy and flourishing student leadership program, student parliament and very active Student Representative Council.

Beyond the curriculum the College offers a range of opportunities for its students including: Student Voice and Leadership, Instrumental Music Program, Performing Arts, Visual Arts Program, School Sports Program and a Camps and Outdoor Education Program.

The College Values of Respect, Resilience, Harmony, and Excellence underpin all that we do as a college as part of a holistic approach to a vibrant learning community.
