NCC provides excellent academic opportunities for all students, employing experienced teachers who support students to expand and achieve their learning goals. Our College provides all university prerequisite subjects that students may choose to undertake.
While the Junior curriculum is designed to allow students to experience a broad range of subject and to discover their strengths and interests, the VCE program allows students to pursue their specific interests and to set up a solid foundation for tertiary study and beyond.
VCE curriculum follows VCAA requirements and study designs, but Christian values and ethics continue to be central to all study.
Yr 11 students study 6 subjects. Yr 12 students study 6 subjects, but one of these may be completed in Yr 11 as part of the Extension Program.
All VCE students at Nunawading Christian College study Texts and Traditions, culminating in an in-depth study of the book of Luke, allowing the Special Character of the school to be experienced right to the end of VCE.
All Year 10 student are given the opportunity to study a Year 11 VCE subject as part of their Year 10 program. This gives them experience and insights for how to best approach their subjects remaining Year 11 subjects the following year and allows them to finish one Year 12 subject when they are in Year 11. High-achieving Year 12 students may choose to enter a University Extension subject, completing a first-year undergraduate subject while in Year 12
Individual VCE program advice is offered to all students on an ongoing basis to ensure success, support and wellbeing. Small VCE class sizes allow for a high level of monitoring, support and personalised tutorial-style teaching.
Subjects offered at VCE level are determined by the interests of the Year 10 class as they prepare to enter their VCE.
This means that the subject line up will vary from year to year. Students may access subjects through external providers such as the Victorian School of Languages, TAFEs, Distance Education Victoria and VETiS providers.
