School Profile

Beechworth Secondary College, a small secondary college with an enrolment around 250, is situated in attractive, spacious grounds, covering four hectares.

Beechworth, with a population of around 3,700, is a progressive community with a lively cultural life. It is close to the two large rural centres of Wangaratta and Albury/Wodonga, yet is not dominated by them. Proud of its modest size and the friendly, personal way in which staff, students and parents work together, the College provides a comprehensive curriculum from Year 7 to Year 12 taught by a talented and dedicated staff.

Our vision is ‘Connecting Communities, Widening Worlds…’ and we make the most of the significant advantages of our small size and provide a rigorous, well-balanced education which enables all students to develop to their full potential. We emphasise the importance of students being independent and responsible and we instil the values of Aspire, Respect and Contribute within our teaching and learning program.

Curriculum offerings at Years 7 to 10 follow the Victorian Curriculum. In Years 11 and 12 we offer a comprehensive VCE, VET and VCAL program. This program is supplemented by high-definition video conferencing, TAFE, Wodonga Trade Training Centre consortium membership and Distance Education.

We have a wide range of extra-curricular activities including instrumental music, an annual musical production, a wide range of excursions, competitions, theatre visits, visiting performances, sports program, snow sports and camps.
