Caroline Chisholm Catholic College


Caroline Chisholm Catholic College is a co-educational, multi-campus secondary school in Melbourne’s inner west dedicated to learning excellence in an engaged faith-filled and support environment.

We believe every student is talented and offer them the chance to succeed whether academically or through our co-curriculum and extension programs.

Specifically, we offer a number of STEM extension programs including, SEAMS – The University of Melbourne’s Strengthening Engagement and Achievements in Maths and Science, a two-year school holiday program offered to our Year 11 students.

SEAMS was a wonderful program that was extremely beneficial to me as a student. I was able to expand my knowledge and get ahead in school, whilst experiencing what ‘uni life’ really feels like. The mentors and tutors were all encouraging and really informative. I had the opportunity to meet great people and make new friends. I would recommend this camp to everyone, as it is a very enjoyable experience.

Nhat, Year 12 Student

Extension programs are not just limited to VCE students. We offer an accelerated educational and enrichment program, Aspire, for students in Years 7 – 9 with exceptional academic abilities and a strong work ethic.

Aspire Science promotes excellence and challenges me to be my best in a stimulating and personalised learning environment. Our classes pose real world problems, allowing us to explore and experience authentic and deep learning that challenges our thinking and broadens our knowledge.

More than 95% of our Year 12 students go on to tertiary studies at universities across Australia. We have established links through our VCAL and VET programs with TAFE institutions, which are locally situated to service our multicultural community.
