Why Victory?

The Victory difference is our caring culture. It's visible in the classroom, playground, Caregroups and on the sporting fields. Each staff member makes a special effort to know and care for the students in their charge. Staff do not follow a ‘one size fits all’ approach but strive to develop individual pathways for students according to their particular interests and talents. Our aim is to inspire, motivate and empower students towards reaching their true potential, achieving their own goals and individual personal bests.

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

Our academic programs develop confident, literate and numerate problem solvers who have the skills and knowledge to strive for their personal best.

The achievements of the Class of 2021 were extraordinary. Their resilience, determination and positive relationships during the past two challenging years is testament to how well they adapted to the disruption of COVID-19 and Remote Learning.

Our Old Collegians have been offered university courses ranging from Medicine, Nursing, Biomedicine, Exercise & Sport Science to Physiotherapy, Journalism, Film Television & Animation to Information Technology, Education to Outdoor Leadership, Criminology & Psychological Science, Social Work and Business & Marketing. Students are studying at local universities, CSU & La Trobe as well as RMIT, Deakin, Monash, Swinburne and Melbourne.

We also take this time to knowledge and celebrate students who have successfully obtained full time employment and apprenticeships in their preferred career.

We wish our old Collegians all the best and remind them that they are always welcome back to our Victory Lutheran College community.
