Caroline Chisholm Catholic College is a co-educational secondary College in Melbourne’s inner west, dedicated to learning excellence in an engaged, faith-filled and supportive environment. The College supports students to be the best they are called to be, whether academically via science and mathematics programs, artistically with music and drama, hands-on trades or through our co-curriculum activities, such as sports, social justice, and other programs that make us special.
Our programs provide a strong foundation for future pathways which is reflected in our academic results; 95% of our Year 12 students have gone onto tertiary education, and in 2020, we maintained our median Study Score of 28. Our College Dux achieved a 98.7 ATAR and several students were successful in achieving scholarships to top tier universities.
Students have access to online platforms that enhance their learning, and through our networks, including University of Melbourne and Victoria University, students can gain insights into future studies and work opportunities. Although students achieve excellent academic success, the College believes education is more than just a score.
There are a number of extension programs, including international exchanges with schools in Japan and Italy; Aspire, our accelerated educational and enrichment program; Encore Music for students in Years 7 to 9; and a partnership with Australian Catholic University enabling Year 12 students to study tertiary subjects while at the College.
At Caroline Chisholm Catholic College, we recognise that educating for the future starts with putting the needs of our students front and centre, alongside our values of faith, acceptance, compassion and excellence.
