Principal’s Message

A Faith-filled and Spirited Catholic Workplace of Learning

Southern Cross Catholic Vocational College is an innovative Catholic Senior Secondary College with a difference.

Students attending the College combine rigorous campus-based learning with real-life work-based learning. We like to think of it as the Southern Cross Advantage.

The Southern Cross Advantage allows students to combine studies for senior school qualifications with higher level National Qualifications at Certificate II and Certificate III level. Southern Cross students graduate work-ready and with dual qualifications.

The College provides quality vocational learning and training provision in first-class facilities. The College’s focus on applied learning is supported by the College’s Enterprise Department and extensive affiliations with business and industry partners. College graduates have been regular finalists and winners of Australian and NSW Training Awards.

SCCVC is a unique and special place for young adults to learn and grow. The College focus on applied learning allows students to learn by doing. Learning is personalised and supported by mentors and specialist learning facilitators. The integration of campus-based and work-based learning provides an ideal opportunity for students to flourish and develop valuable employability skills.

Most importantly, as the name suggests, Southern Cross is a Catholic College. It seeks to educate young men and young women in a respectful Catholic environment. This is the dimension of the Southern Cross Advantage that ensures graduates are not only well-qualified, but encourages them to be the very best young men and women that they can be.

If you would like to know more about the Southern Cross Advantage or you are ready to take the first step in an innovative pathway of applied learning, do not hesitate to contact the College.
