The school has a long established reputation of providing a rich and diverse educational program to students across the Inner East of Melbourne. The school offers VCE, VCAL, VETis and School based apprenticeships programs to support and provides a framework for students to follow their chosen pathway. Currently the College is going through a significant period of change and is looking to build upon its teaching and learning program, to better suit the needs of students.

We recognise that all teachers will work to address inequity so that all of our students reach their full potential. Teachers recognise the value of having students from diverse and different backgrounds who work together and are provided with a range of approaches to accommodate the academic needs of our students. In doing so, we are aspirational and future thinking.

We expect that all teachers practice a learner-centred and inclusive approach that supports and challenges each student. Students pursue their passions through inquiry learning projects and pathways courses and programs where they grow their individual knowledge and skill.

We develop student centred learning projects and activities that integrate multiple types of learning opportunities, using inquiry across disciplines where possible. This leads to the creation of meaningful and challenging learning opportunities for every student. Students are engaged in the work that matters to them, to their teachers and to the world outside of school. Students connect their learning to the world through fieldwork, community service, applied learning, specialist vocational programs and consultation with community experts. Our school is a collaborative workspace, supported by relevant technology, curriculum and learning opportunities where critical thinking and student learning artefacts are created and displayed.

Box Hill Senior Secondary College teachers work collaboratively and creatively to design relevant curriculum, engage in on-going professional development, while seeking student experience and voice in the development of these areas. With students as valued design partners, staff function as reflective practitioners, creating an equitable teaching and learning culture where high quality curriculum and authentic assessment occur.
