Forest Hill College is a co-educational state secondary college in Burwood East, Victoria, Australia.

The College[edit]

Up until 2010, Forest Hill College was divided into 2 sub-schools, Junior (Year 7-9), and Senior (Year 10-12), with a courtyard for Year 7-9, a courtyard for Year 10, and another courtyard for VCE Year 11-12.

New developmental plans for the school were implemented in 2010 which has since changed the way in which the college is divided. No longer are there separate courtyards based on year level, instead students are free to roam the entire college and interact with peers of all ages. This is part of the college's focus on community, in an attempt to build friendships throughout the college, making students feel welcome. This change is only one aspect of the ongoing development within the College.

Year levels are assisted in their welfare roles by Junior and Senior Student Wellbeing Coordinators, a part-time Adolescent Health Nurse, a College Chaplain and Home Group Teachers.

Subjects on Offer in VCE[edit]

In addition to a standard list of subjects on offer, the school also offers the VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning), with students spending a few days at Forest Hill College, other days at TAFEs in the area and for some, a few days at work.

Specialist Programs[edit]

Forest Hill College offers a wide range of programs for all students including AcE (Academic Enrichment), International Football and Tennis Program, International Student Program, Netball Program and Deaf Facility.
