St James College maintains and implements a contemporary curriculum based on our vision and mission as a Catholic school. It is consistent with the AusVELS Learning Standards and the National Goals for Schooling.

The curriculum embraces all aspects of St James College life. It is designed for students to achieve increasing responsiblity for their wellbeing, learning and relationships with others, and their role as young Christians in the local and global community. The curriculum focuses on the development of independent, flexible and self-regulatory learners for a world in which knowledge is highly valued and constantly changing, and where relationships are subject to increasing complexity. Learning programs are designed for a range of abilities and interests.

ICT is an integral part of teaching and learning. The curriculum is supported with state of the art ICT and students connect, collaborate and communicate through personal mobile devices in a learning environment that promotes mobile, self-directed, personalised learning. St James College is attuned to current educational research and innovations. All curriculum decisions are informed through a sound assessment process, designed to monitor the progress of the individual towards the achievement of state and national standards.

Student Leadership

All St James College students are expected to develop their leadership qualities with many elected to formal student leadership positions including College Leader, Homeroom Mentor, Lasalian Youth Leader, Student Representative Councillor, or as Captains of the many teams and groups. It is the responsibility of students in these positions to 'lead by example' in their studies, their commitment to College life and their participation in social justice activities. They are expected to demonstrate the Lasalian traditions of excellence, integrity and respect while at school and when representing the College in the wider community.

One of the many opportunities for student leadership at St James College is the Lasalian Youth Leaders' program. As one of the four Lasalian schools in Melbourne, this program is founded in the tradition of St John Baptist de La Salle who actively encouraged his teachers to act as 'brothers' to the students in their care. Similarly, the Lasalian Youth Leaders play a role of older brother to the younger students of the College as they participate in a range of activities such as school retreatsm fundraising days and school holiday camps. This model of 'servant leadership' allows the senior students become significant role models for the younger students at the College.

St James College is a smaller school with a strong pastoral program and a close bond between students and staff. We aim to engage young men in positive learning relationships to provide opportunities for success in a range of endeavours.
