Cycle 5 offers a breadth of programs to provide every student with a suitable pathway through secondary school. Continuing the journey from Cycle 4, we start Cycle 5 in Year 9 where students embrace the learning of Australian Curriculum subjects in the context of real world applications, while making the connection with the relevance of theoretical knowledge. The curriculum is taught through the Montessori philosophy which includes both experiential and academic learning and provides students with a high degree of agency, independence and self direction. Student are typically engaged in a range of activities with external experts and draw on their diverse skill sets.
Year 9 and Year 10 studies prepare students for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme or Melbourne Montessori Program (VCAL).
