Upper Yarra Secondary College is located in the Yarra Valley, about 65 km east of Melbourne, Australia in the state of Victoria. About 600 students from Years 7 to 12 attend UYSC. Students enrol in the school, coming from thirteen different Primary Schools.
UYSC offers a wide range of academic subjects, leading into tertiary education. We also recognise that many students prefer a curriculum with a practical or vocational focus.
In years 8 and 9, students follow their areas of interest by selecting from a range of electives tied into the major areas of the Arts, Physical (Outdoor) Education, Technology, LOTE, SOSE (Marine Biology) and Science (Forensic).
This leads them into an extensive subject selection in years 10 to 12 including traditional VCE as well as TAFE courses, Vocational Education Training (VET) and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) studies. UYSC now offers School-based Apprenticeships.
Steeped in history, Upper Yarra Secondary College is one of the popular school in the Yarra Junction area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
