Canning Vale College(CVC) was established in 2004 with 371 year 8 and 9 students. The college now has 923 students in years 8 to 12. Our new $35m college has all the 'state of the art' facilities that enable staff to ensure each and every child has the best chance of achieving at the highest levels.
The college is divded into 2 independent sub schools, a middle school for students in years 8 and 9 and a senior school for years 10 to 12. Each sub school is designed and run to specifically meet the needs of each group of students. The middle school has a strong pastral care focus while the the senior school has a strong career and vocation focus.
TLC@CVC is the heart of our exciting and innovative programs delivered by merit selected staff. TLC stands for Thinking, Learning and Caring. We believe that academic excellence comes from explicitly teaching our students how to think, not only about world problems but also how they think about themselves and others. Our learning programs are varied and include the 'big question' which is an activity that integrates many learning areas as student solve real, complex and relevant problems.
Our care system is based on a 'Family teacher' in the middle school and the 'Advocate teacher' in the senior school, who is responsible for not only a students academic progress but also their social and emotional development. The Family/Advocate teacher is also responsible for getting to know a student's family very well, becoming the main contact for parents.
