In Year 10, students leave behind the familiarity of the Mannix Campus and begin to lay the foundations for successful academic outcomes. They mature in their outlook, and begin to develop the skills which will hold them in good stead for the next three years and into the future.
An integral part of Year 10 is the consideration of the future possibilities beyond school. As part of the Year 10 Future Focus program, boys spend time evaluating their strengths and weaknesses, and considering careers for which they would be best suited. Students visit the Careers Expo at Caulfield Racecourse, to gather information and resources on VCE, University, TAFE and other possible future pathways. They are also provided with one-on-one Course Advising Sessions, where they develop an individual pathway plan. The plan takes into consideration boys interests, passions and all relevant tertiary courses and prerequisite subjects.
The Year 10 program consists of a combination of core subjects, as well as a selection of five elective subjects for the year.
Within these elective subjects, highly able Year 10 students may elect to study a VCE Unit 1/2 subject, provided they meet minimum prerequisite requirements outlined by the College.The College also offers Year 10 boys the opportunity to undertake the Year 10 PreCal Program, a precursor to the Applied Learning Program offered in Years 11 and 12.
