We are building the Centre for Higher Education Studies (CHES) to further improve educational outcomes for high-achieving and high-ability senior secondary school students across Victoria.
CHES students will be able to study first-year university courses and select VCE subjects, accompanied by an enhancement and enrichment program. This 'head start' on tertiary courses allows our most capable students to undertake study aligned to their skills and interests that contributes to their ATAR, while gaining university credits.
The multistorey centre, constructed on land purchased from the
Melbourne High School Foundation, will include an auditorium, technology-rich learning spaces and tertiary-standard science and design labs.
Students will remain enrolled at their chosen secondary school and be able to undertake a course at CHES as part of their VCE program. To support rural and regional students, all CHES programs will be accessible through virtual platforms as well as on-site.
Stewart Milner has been appointed principal of the school. See the drop-down below for more information.
