Templestowe College has a vision to “co-create high quality learning experiences within an inclusive and supportive community”. This ambition drives every aspect of what the school does and has led to a growth in enrolment from just 286 students to more than 1,150 in nine years. With input from parents, each student develops an individualised learning plan with a five-year time planning horizon. Students are supported in modifying and adapting this plan as their interests change. Additionally, TC has no year levels, so students are free to study subjects at a level that suits them – and only in areas that they see as relevant and important.
