Varsity College Junior Secondary is built on the foundation of relationships, relevance and rigour. Each class has one or two foundation teachers for over half of the week who will become familiar with their students very well through focused lessons on Mathematics, English, Science, History, Geography and inquiry based investigations and projects.
The creation of a distinct Varsity College Junior Secondary School is designed to respond to the needs of students in early adolescence. Six principles which underpin the middle school phase of education are:
Students in junior secondary study compulsory subjects (core subjects) and choose their elective program. In Years 7 and 8 students choose two electives. In Year 9 students choose three electives. Each elective program runs for a semester.
Our ASPIRE programs are designed to extend students beyond the mainstream curriculum in their area/s of interest and passion. ASPIRE programs are by application only. Applications are open at the beginning and end of each year. Students must apply and go through the selection process which includes testing in the relevant areas of each program. These programs are highly competitive and sought after by students; therefore, places are limited.
