St Francis Xavier College offers a broad and extensive Catholic high school curriculum across Year 7 to 12 that strongly relates to our mission. Take a look below to get a specific insight into our curriculum at each year level, and please contact the College if you require further assistance.
We support students through their entire secondary school experience, setting a strong foundation in our Junior Curriculum, before preparing students for life beyond school with our Senior Curriculum. Students experience a variety of learning disciplines, allowing them to build skills and pursue the areas that interest them.
St Francis Xavier College believes in Pathways for All. As such, we have offered VET options to our students for almost 20 years. These vocational pathways offer students additional options to assist them in achieving their education goals. VET studies are an excellent pathway to University, TAFE or training, and employment. Students have the opportunity to add value to their senior secondary schooling by completing nationally recognised VET certificates, courses and qualifications.
Our role as a Melbourne Catholic high school is to provide a well-rounded and supportive environment for students in Melbourne’s south-east. Our Wellbeing curriculum contributes to this mission and equips students with the knowledge and understanding they need to promote their own welfare and that of others.
Our Wellbeing curriculum is aligned to the Victorian Curriculum by teaching Personal and Social Capabilities and inspired by our Catholic identity. It is designed to teach students wellbeing skills as they relate to our Wellbeing For Learning Framework’s three key areas: Relationships, Relevance, and Resilience.
Studying at St Francis Xavier College takes students beyond the classroom and into different areas of the world around them. Students are taught important life skills that will aid them as they get older, and challenged to solve problems, work collaboratively, and be open to new experiences.
