As part of our Catholic community, curriculum is developed to meet the needs of our boys in an ever changing world as teachers walk the journey with the boys as they develop into young men.

Curriculum at St Joseph’s College is developed in the tradition of St John Bosco education and the Preventative System whereby our teachers develop caring and nurturing relationships with each student.

As part of our Catholic community, curriculum is developed to meet the needs of our boys in an ever changing world as teachers walk the journey with the boys as they develop into young men.

Students are taught to be lifelong learners and independent problem solvers who accept responsibility for their learning. Students develop the skills of research and enquiry and are encouraged to question the values of modern society in the light of the Gospel. The mainstream Curriculum and extra-curricula activities are integrated to help students select a vocation to follow in life and set goals to achieve it.

The Curriculum is structured to ensure that all students experience success and are, at the same time, challenged to strive for academic excellence. To this end the learning environment is commensurate with each student’s individual abilities and interests. Religious Education is central to our mission as a Catholic School and therefore is a compulsory subject from Years 7 to 12.

All courses at St Joseph’s College are informed by the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) and the VCE Study Designs developed by the VCAA.
