1. Our College
Strathmore Secondary College has been accepting International Students for many years. Students are provided with experienced and personalised care that takes into account their welfare and academic needs.
The College is located in an attractive suburb, only 20 minutes by train from Melbourne’s city centre and 15 minutes by car to Melbourne Airport.
English is the first language for most students; however, several nationalities are represented at the College, contributing to an environment that values diversity.
Uniform is compulsory for Years 7-11. Year 12 students are permitted to wear casual dress as a transition to university and employment.
The College has a reputation for academic excellence. It promotes a friendly, supportive environment and provides for the academic, sporting, cultural, social and personal development of students.
2. Our Academic Success
The College is respected for its academic success. Our International Students have been particularly successful – graduating with outstanding results in the Victorian Certificate of Education. Most of our International Students receive placements at Melbourne, Monash, Latrobe and RMIT Universities.
3. Subject Choice
There is a broad range of subject choice. Subjects popular with International Students include all levels of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Accounting, Economics, Business Management, Geography, Art, Visual Communication, Information Technology, Food Technology, Music, Psychology & Physical Education.
Many International Students also gain extra units for their VCE by studying their home language: Chinese first Language is taught after school through a 3rd party provider, (Chinese Cultural School), and Vietnamese first Language is offered at the Victorian School of Languages on Saturday mornings.
