Why CCW

There are many reasons students and families choose Catholic College Wodonga.

Impressive Results

100% in 2020 100% of our VCAL students went into further training or the workforce.

Positive Relationships

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 school continues to grow, so does our support network.

Inspiring Teaching

Cambridge University recognised Catholic College Wodonga in 2017 and 2018 as one of the top 100 most innovative educational institutions worldwide.

 

Today we continue to challenge ourselves. Our Pathways and Horizon program (an independent learning program where students design their own timetable based on subjects and learning of their interest) are just two examples of how we do this.

Enriching Culture

The richness, breadth and depth of our faith is an integral part of our students’ journey in discovering themselves and the world around them.

 

We take our responsibility to continue the story of the Church, the Mercy Sisters and Catherine McAuley seriously. We have a unique role in the faith journey of young people, and we see their engagement, in class and school activities, as fundamental to their time with us.

Inclusive Community

At Catholic College Wodonga, every staff member is an educator, and every family is part of a student’s learning journey.

 

We see our school as much more than students and teachers. Our school is not only welcoming to families of all backgrounds; we actively encourage the participation of families in school life. Our principal and deputies 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.
