Croydon Secondary College supports its students and the college community in raising their expectations and aspirations to achieve successful futures. Our motto 'Courage, Courtesy, and Service' encapsulates the qualities we believe our community must use and develop to achieve success. Croydon Secondary College is committed to providing a caring and supportive environment in which each student is recognised as an individual and provided with a program that suits their needs and highest aspirations. We cater for a range of students including those who want to go on to tertiary studies, TAFE courses or work.
Our school places special emphasis on providing a smooth transition from primary school to secondary school with our 'Team Small Group' approach in years 7 & 8. In this approach a small team of teachers works with each class and the students are also formed into table teams for most of their lessons. This encourages co-operation and provides new students with an enhanced sense of security.
In the senior school year 10, 11 and 12, we operate a vertical curriculum structure that allows capable students to undertake a wide range of VCE/VET subjects a year ahead of time.
The school has a student population of over 700 students and is set on attractive grounds overlooking the Dandenong Ranges. The school is well serviced by buses and is within easy walking distance from Croydon station. We have recently undergone a major building program and have recently opened a new 2.3 million dollar Arts and Technology centre.
