Curriculum: Years 7 and 8 students study a core curriculum covering the Victorian Essential Learning Standards. The LOTE language offered is Italian. There is an emphasis on teaching strategies to allow students to achieve their full academic potential. Years 9 and 10 students choose all their studies within the elective program. Students must study subjects from all learning areas such as Science, Humanities and Arts but can place different emphasis in areas where they have an interest; for example, Science: they choose from a variety of subjects such as CSI, Advanced Science, Plants and Animals and Environmental Science. There is also the opportunity for students to undertake some acceleration in all subject areas at each year level. Students can also study Instrumental Music at any level. Greensborough College has a High Achievers program for students in Year 7 and 8, with extension subjects offered from Year 9 to accelerate and challenge students. VCE students are offered a broad range of units including Mathematics, Science, Hospitality, Psychology, the Arts (including Drama), Business, Physical Education, History, Technology and Information Technology. The school also has a VCAL program and a number of VET subjects on offer.
