Curriculum: Students enrol in one of four learning programs. Rowville Institute of the Arts (RIA) based at the Eastern Campus offers twenty-first century integrated arts and academic education for talented and aspiring students who love dancing, drama, media, music and/or visual art. Students’ arts experiences are enriched in a variety of ways including Artists in Residence, workshops led by industry professionals and regular excursions and incursions. Rowville Sports Academy (RSA) based at the Eastern Campus is a full time integrated academic and sporting program for students who love Football (Soccer), Basketball, Golf, Aussie Rules Football, Volleyball, Cricket and/or Netball.  RSA utilises highly qualified sporting coaches to develop the talent of young male and female student athletes as an integral part of their secondary education.  Rowville Maths and Science Academy (MSA) based at the Western Campus promotes academic excellence and innovative thinking through an integrated, themed and practical curriculum for students who love maths and/or science. Research and real life application underpins acceleration, enrichment and enhancement in a range of Mathematics and Science subjects from Year Seven to Year Twelve. Rowville General Excellence (GE) based at the both the Eastern and Western Campus is an academic program that provides for diversity of talent and interest. It has the broadest range of both core curriculum and elective subjects. In Year Eleven and Twelve, students can select to complete VCE, VCAL, VET or SBAT.

Extra-curricular activities: A full range of sporting activities are on offer to our students with opportunities to reach state level competition. The performing arts area includes a very strong music and band program, dance subjects to VCE level and whole college musicals/productions. Leadership and personal development programs are also key elements of the wider program.

Student wellbeing programs: The pastoral care needs of students is catered for through a junior and senior school structure with student support being provided by Year Level Team Leaders, Heads of School and Student Wellbeing Coordinators. We continue to invest significant time and effort in developing a cluster approach to transition with our feeder primary schools. Rowville Secondary College students and parents/guardians participate in First Term and Student Led Conferences. Involvement in this form of conferencing provides students with the opportunity to take a more active role in the evaluation of their work and more accountable for their learning.

All students participate in ConnectEd (Pastoral Care) once a fortnight. These sessions focus on the promotion of health and wellbeing.
