Yarra Hills Secondary College is a multi-campus college of approximately 850 students across two campuses in the Mooroolbark/Kilsyth and Mount Evelyn districts of outer eastern Melbourne and is part of the North East Victoria Region of DET. Yarra Hills’ Mooroolbark Campus houses both junior (7-10) and senior (11 & 12) educational precincts on a single site, while the Mt Evelyn campus is years 7-10 only. All Year 7-10 students progress to the Mooroolbark site for their senior studies.
Having increased year 7 enrolments in recent years, as well as strong community interest, we anticipate continued growth over coming years. Our programs build strong foundations which provide a solid basis for future success by emphasising literacy, numeracy and the embedding of information and communication technologies across all subjects within the curriculum. A solid core curriculum is supported by an extensive elective program that recognises the different needs and talents of students and supports individual learning and career pathways. All year 10 students have access to participation in an extension program into VCE studies, assisting in maximising tertiary entrance scores. A broad and engaging curriculum has led to a high proportion of our students achieving successful academic pathways to university or TAFE through VCE or alternately into vocational pathways through VET and VCAL school-based apprenticeships, as well as the new DET Headstart Program. The college co-curricular program also includes outstanding sport, camps, performing arts, visual arts and outdoor education programs, as well as a very highly regarded instrumental music program.

The Victoria State Government is the executive administrative authority of the Australian state of Victoria.
As a parliamentary constitutional monarchy, the State Government was first formed in 1851 when Victoria first gained the right to responsible government. Since the federation of Australia in 1901, Victoria has been a state, to which the Constitution of Australia regulates its relationship with the Australian Government. Under the Constitution, all states ceded legislative and judicial supremacy to the federal government but retain powers in matters not in conflict with federal law.
