Academic 8


St Aloysius College has created an exciting learning experience in Year 8, commencing in 2018. For students, Academic 8 will develop their recognition of cross-curricular connections, skills and outcomes in the Year 8 curriculum but importantly enhance their learning independence post the transition stage of Year 7.

Teachers of Year 8 students creatively deliver a curriculum that highlights connections in learning to enthuse and excite students. The outcome is students who develop deeper learning skills, improved literacy and increased ability to transfer and connect knowledge.




Through experiencing the positive results of teachers collaborating from all Learning Areas to create thematic approaches to learning, Academic 8 will not only bring the Victorian Curriculum Capabilities and Catholic Education Melbourne’s Education for Sustainability into the vernacular but also into the consciousness of our students.
