St John’s is proud to be a Catholic College which aims to develop the whole person, engaging the mind, the hands, the spirit and the heart of each student.
What makes a modern learner successful?
Is it independence, adaptability, creativity, innovation, technological literacy, communication, or critical and reflective thinking skills?
St John’s students engage in a curriculum that is increasingly reflective of best contemporary practice. As we evolve our curriculum to engage in 21st century learning our students are more progressively encouraged to experience learning through connections rather than in isolation.
We recognise the importance of developing a sense of global citizenship and social responsibility in our students.
St John’s Regional College engages our students in Years 7 to 10 through the Victorian Curriculum. The Religious Education program draws upon the Catholic Education Melbourne Religious Education Framework and the Pedagogy of Encounter.
In VCE, students select from over 40 VCE and VET study fields that range from the artistic and expressive through to the scientific and technological. We focus on developing students’ sense of preparedness for University, TAFE and future employment. Students with high academic results have the option to accelerate their VCE studies and also extend their learning through University courses.
Our VCAL program engages students in a hands-on approach to learning, developing employability skills through regular work placements in a multitude of industries and TAFE studies based on their desired future pathways. These students engage in a project-based approach to learning that is reflective of contemporary practice. Our VCAL students regularly engage with our local community.
