Values and Vision
The curriculum at Scotch College involves students working towards the Victoria Certificate of Education. This qualification is assessed over a long period of time in senior school, and includes a wide range of subjects for students to study. At the end of their studies, students are given a ranking score between 0 and 50, used to determine their entrance into a university. Scotch College also highly values the personal development of its students, and to this end provides an enormous range of extra-curricular activities for students to choose from, all designed to further their personal development, and includes a military band, the Army Cadet Corps, and a debating society, as well as a number of sports teams.
