Learning

With an emphasis on consolidating core knowledge, skills and understanding, our curriculum enables students to develop a deep sense of themselves, others and the wider world.

De La boys are supported and challenged all the way from the small family environment in Years 4 – 6 where there is one class in each year level, to the larger campus for Years 7 & 8 and Years 9 & 10 where we build resilience and encourage students to explore new academic and co-curricular pursuits, right through to Years 11 & 12 where students excel in their choice of a VCE or VCAL pathway.

We know that every student learns differently. That’s why our Specialised Programs, including accelerated programs and the Mary MacKillop Enhancement Centre, enable all students to reach their potential.
