Suzanne Cory High School is a new way to learn.
Suzanne Cory provides highly able students Years 9 to 12 with an individually tailored and challenging educational experience, leading to outstanding outcomes and pathways into tertiary education.
As a government Selective Entry School, the educational focus of the school is to provide a challenging and rigorous curriculum for students who are intellectually and creatively gifted, delivered in conjunction with a rich co-curricular program designed to extend their learning.
The comprehensive curriculum and teaching and learning model practised within the school is based on internationally recognised best practice research on high levels of student learning achievement. Unlike a SEAL Academy accredited or independently “streamed” accelerated learning program, Suzanne Cory’s curriculum is delivered to all students, and is endorsed by the Victorian Department of Education and Training.
Suzanne Cory High School is committed to sustainable practices, with extensive recycling and environmentally-friendly programs including the Sustainable School Shop, which allows students to reuse textbooks, uniforms, and school equipment.

The Year 9 curriculum forms the foundation of learning at Suzanne Cory High School, combining essential study skills with transitional programs designed to adjust students to the school’s challenging and stimulating learning approach. Students also develop vital social and interpersonal skills through involvement with school camps, House activities, and the robust co-curricular program.
The middle-school years are a time for students to experience a wide range of subjects and to further develop their foundational study habits. Suzanne Cory provides students with the opportunity to broaden their academic and creative horizons, developing not only their knowledge and skill base through a range of electives, but fostering an interest and passion for lifelong learning.
The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) is an accreditation that recognises the successful completion of a student’s secondary education. VCE study at Suzanne Cory spans Year 11 and Year 12, with opportunities for high-achieving students to accelerate their studies at junior year levels. Students may also contribute to the creative and social programs of the school through positions of student leadership and responsibility.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a global leader in international education—developing inquiring, knowledgeable, confident, and caring young people. Suzanne Cory High School will be offering the IB Diploma Programme in 2024. The IB programmes empower school-aged students to take ownership in their own learning and help them develop future-ready skills to make a difference and thrive in a world that changes fast.
