Wodonga Senior Secondary College is one of Victoria’s largest senior colleges known for its extensive curriculum choice, cutting edge approach to education, varied learning experiences.

Big School Opportunities, Small School Care

With our broad range of academic and vocational selections, opportunity and choice are a promise of a WSSC education. However, we also provide small-school care so every student feels valued and supported. With our four House structure we offer smaller learning communities over the different year levels, tailoring programs to meet the unique needs of individual students, further supported by our careers and wellbeing programs.

Our motto is ‘Every Student, Every Opportunity, Success for All’

The College is built on the foundations of over 50 years of secondary education in the Wodonga district. These grand traditions are the basis of our grand future. We offer the widest variety of subject choices in the region and the ability to enable all students to choose their individually suited pathways for success. Our aim is to provide all students with the maximum opportunity for personal and academic growth in a supportive environment; one specially designed to advance students in their later secondary years.

Through the College Graduate Program, every student is provided with personal counselling and careers information to assist in the transition from school to the years beyond; from Tertiary education choices, apprenticeships and traineeships to job preparation.
