Vermont Secondary College is one of the top rating government secondary colleges in Victoria as measured by The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) scores. Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) results are significantly above State and ‘Like’ (similar demographics) school averages. School performance data can also be view from Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority and My School sites.

Congratulations to the class of 2018 on fantastic overall results. The most pleasing statistic is the fact that 71% (134 students) of the VCE cohort of 189 students finished in the top 40% of the state of approximately 50,000 VCE students. This figure, in the top 40%, in 2016 and 2017 for VSC was 66%.

Also extremely pleasing is the fact that over a third of our 2018 cohort, 34%, finished in the top 20% of the state of approximately 50,000 VCE students. In 2016 this figure was 32% and in 2017 it was 33%.
