Enrolling in a
Selective Entry School

What is a Selective Entry School?

Victoria’s four Selective Entry High Schools are the only Victorian public schools exclusively designed for academically talented students. As proud government schools, each Selective Entry High School has a unique profile with the core purpose of nurturing academic excellent in young adults in Years 9 to 12. Unlike SEAL schools, or schools offering “selective” acceleration programs, Suzanne Cory’s cohort is entirely based on selective entry, and does not engage in streaming. Rather, all students at Suzanne Cory High School are considered academically and intellectually gifted, and undertake an accelerated curriculum designed to challenge and stimulate students of high academic ability.

Suzanne Cory is a government public high school and does not charge any tuition fees. To learn more about what fees may be charged by government public schools, please click here.
