Year 10-12 (V3)

At Carwatha College P-12, ALL students study VCE over three years. That extra year of our personalised, innovative approach to senior studies means your child has a greater chance of success. Over V3 empowers students to achieve better results, seek out better oppurtunities and make better choices for their future.

Why V3?

  • Gives our students ahead start and time to consolidate skills
  • Personalised program
  • Wider choice, more breadth of study
  • Stronger oppurtunities for increased ATAR
