A new type of school - Charles La Trobe College provides a unique learning experience for students, enabling each individual to achieve both personal and academic success.
The main campus of the college is divided into three ‘mini schools’ that are matched to the stages of learning of our students: Junior School - Prep - Year 4; Middle School -Years 5 - 8 and Senior School -Years 9 -12. In addition to the main campus, Olympic Village Campus caters for Prep – Year 4.
At our Junior School Prep students are nurtured so they develop foundation knowledge, skills and behaviours in literacy and numeracy. They expand their social skills, gain confidence and make new friends in the safe and secure P-4 learning environment. They are strongly supported through a personalised learning approach to develop the foundations required to be successful learners for life.
Our Middle School students are provided with opportunities to devise and use problem solving strategies, creatively explore and build on their knowledge of the world and apply it in everyday life. They are supported to develop organisational skills and self-confidence.
Student engagement and leadership opportunities are a feature of our Senior School. High quality curriculum and a range of electives and innovative programs such as the City Centre experience and the World at Work Program prepare our Year 9 and 10 students for further studies in Years 11 and 12.
Each ‘mini school’ has a team of dedicated teachers working together in student learning communities to tailor the learning program to the individual needs of their students.
Each student learning community is equipped with the latest technology and teaching resources to ensure the best possible education for our students. Students have access to computers from Prep onwards and enjoy a 1:1 netbook and laptop program from Year 4 to VCE.
Our new buildings offer maximum flexibility for tailoring learning experiences within a range of exciting spaces. The student learning communities use these spaces to work in large and small groups, for one to one tuition, working in pairs and independent work.
