Curriculum

Hamilton Secondary College is committed to a SACE curriculum which provides Year 11 and 12 students with flexible and relevant learning. The courses available allow students to develop pathways and skills for the future. Each student meets their individual needs through a program which is negotiated through the services of Student Counsellors, Careers Advisers and Year Level Managers.

Parents/caregivers and senior students are engaged in this dynamic process of using the senior school curriculum to construct a successful transition to a future beyond school for each individual.
