International Student Program


Nestled in the heart of the community, WycheproofCollege provides an engaging and diverse education for students in years Prep to 12. The school has a long standing reputation for strong academic achievement as there is a culture of high expectations of students in terms of learning and behaviour. Students are encouraged to ‘be their best’ in all that they undertake - including sporting and musical attainment. Opportunities to supplement learning programs to raise aspirations, broaden understandings and encourage students to realise their potential are sought at every occasion. As a school we take great delight in following the successful careers of many of our past students both here in Australia and overseas.
