Red Cliffs Secondary College caters for all students from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds. Whilst many families represent the agricultural and horticultural development of the surrounding areas, others reflect the range of professions found in the district. The College provides comprehensive and sequential courses for all years in the eight curriculum areas: English, Mathematics, Science, Technology, Humanities, the Arts, Health and Physical Education, and Languages other than English (Indonesian and Chinese). At VCE and VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) levels, students are able to select courses which guarantee pathways to further studies at University and TAFE, training and employment.
The College has a very successful program involving the Arts, particularly Music, Drama, Dance and Media Studies. All students have frequent opportunities to perform publicly at such events as Speech Night, Mildura Eisteddfods, drama and musical productions and community functions.
Red Cliffs Secondary College is dedicated to developing and caring for the whole student, which is why we have a comprehensive curriculum, a broad co-curricular activities program, a clear student management policy and a dedicated well-being team. All areas work together to provide the best outcomes for all students.
