Why choose Catholic College Wodonga?
Our focus is the individual journey of every student.
Our results demonstrate the success of this approach –
90+ We have a large number of students each year achieve an ATAR of 90+ which places them in the top 9% of students across Victoria.
40+ Every year, an impressive range of different subjects achieve a study score of 40+, placing these students in the top 9% of Victoria.
100% of our VCAL students went into further training or the workforce.
100% of our students are tracked into their chosen pathway whether that be apprenticeships, training, education or other full time employment.
We firmly believe that the best learning outcomes are grounded in positive relationships between students, staff and families.
Our Learning Mentor program provides students with a single contact point.
We are a large school with a small school approach. Students are at the centre of our decision making, and as our College continues to grow, so does our support network.
School Wide Positive Behaviour Supports (SWPBS)
We believe that a positive, safe and supportive learning culture begins with a clear and visible framework.
As a SWPBS school we explicitly teach and encourage appropriate behaviours to replace undesired behaviours. We build effective environments using a data informed and evidence based approach.
This evidence approach has been used to position our recently revised Mobile Phone policy, where removing phones during the school hours has had a positive impact on socialisation and learning.
At Catholic College Wodonga, every staff member is an educator, and every family is part of a student’s learning journey.
We see our College as much more than students and teachers. Our College is not only welcoming to families of all backgrounds; we actively encourage the participation of families in College life.
Our Principal and Deputy Principals conduct Learning Walks every term. Through these popular on-site sessions, parents and educators gain insight into our broader strategic direction – what we do, and why – as well as what families can do to further engage in the learning of their child at home.
The Catholic Education Difference
We believe every young person deserves the best possible chance at learning. Whether you want to be an astronaut or an auto mechanic, a boilermaker or a ballerina, Catholic College Wodonga has a pathway to success for you.
A love of learning is central to everything we do. Here you’ll follow your passion, build on your gifts and strive to be better tomorrow than you are today. But we know that life gets messy and things go wrong, and when they do we’re ready to support you and forgive you and help you make things right. Everyone has a place at Catholic College Wodonga, and everyone is given a chance to shine.
