Carrum Downs Secondary College is a vibrant community of approximately 940 students across Years 7-12. We strive to empower our students to create their future, respect each other and grow academically and socially. By actively teaching and promoting the College values of Respect, Integrity and Effort, we maintain a positive, caring and safe environment where every student is given an opportunity to demonstrate learning growth.
Students are presented with a vast range of learning opportunities that cater for their diverse needs and interests. These include food technology and hospitality subjects (supported by experiences within Café 263), performing arts and the annual production, sporting teams, leadership programs and various outdoor education camps.
Our passionate teachers follow a consistent lesson schema to maintain focus on academic success, as well as using The Resilience Project to foster positive relationships with students that support the emotional development of our young people.
We have a vertical House system which sees students allocated into one of the four houses when they enter the school, and remain under the guidance of the same House throughout their journey through secondary school. This promotes connectedness to the school and builds strong relationships between students, their family and the College staff.
Our renowned SHINE program (Structured Help in Numeracy and English) supported by Monash University, demonstrates success in improving the outcomes for our students who require additional support in enhancing their Literacy and Numeracy skills.
Our recent investments in infrastructure will this year see the completion of a state-of-the-art multi-million dollar sports complex. This facility will further enhance our curriculum programs and ability to deliver outstanding opportunities for our students and greater community.
We look forward to sharing the Carrum Downs Secondary College experience with you and your family and invite you to book a private tour.
