VCE Curriculum | Ivanhoe Girls' Grammar School

VCE Curriculum

In the final years of secondary education girls develop more mature and independent ways of working. Course selection in the VCE years has significant implications for future study options and career paths. The School's subject selection processes are designed to provide support in a systematic and timely manner. It is important to remember, however, that girls do best when they choose subjects they enjoy and in which they are confident. Once students' choices are made, the grouping of studies and the School's timetabling are based on these choices.  

A wide range of VCE subjects is offered.
