The Year 7 – 10 curriculum is based on the new Victorian Curriculum. There is a core program in Years 7 and 8 and an elective program in Years 9 and 10. The iPad Program supports teaching and learning from Years 7 to 10 as each student has access to their own device in a wireless environment. Students possess greater levels of technological literacy through all subject areas and are better prepared for further education, training and to live and work in a digital world. There is a strong emphasis on building interdisciplinary skills in communication, inquiry based learning, problem solving and using Information and Communication Technology. There is future focused curriculum at year 10 and students have the opportunity to select units that reflect further study options. This curriculum effectively assists student in the development of a global perspective and active citizenship.
The Years 7 and 8 curriculum provides student with a solid foundation for future learning by building sequential knowledge and skill development in English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and LOTE (German and Japanese). The school has a vibrant Arts, Technology and Design program where students enjoy a range of creative learning experiences. The Health and Physical Education (HAPE) program places a strong emphasis on active participation and healthy life styles. The Select Entry Accelerated Learning Program (SEAL) at North Geelong Secondary College (NGSC) provides an opportunity for students to undertake learning experiences that are designed to meet the needs of students; capable of outstanding academic achievement, who want to be challenged and who demonstrate high levels of task commitment.
Year 9 & 10 students are required to undertake core studies in English, Maths, Science, Humanities and HAPE. They also have opportunities to select from a broad range of elective subjects from different learning areas. Students are encouraged to progressively take more responsibility for their own learning.
In Years 11 and 12, students have access to a broad range of VCE and Vocational Education subjects and may choose pathways from the VCE and VCAL programs.
