The VCE Class of 2014 at Salesian College Chadstone has distinguished itself as a cohort, achieving results that have surpassed previous years. This result is testimony to the sustained effort over many years to develop a robust learning environment, brought to life by a group of diligent, professional and committed educators. The boys in this cohort have not achieved their results by one year of work but by doing small things each day and with all of their teachers to ultimately achieve their goals.

The Highlights of the combined Unit 3 and 4 results include:
•    A VCE Completion rate of 100 per cent
•    37 per cent of our students achieved an ATAR above 80
•    18 per cent of students achieved an ATAR exceeding 90
•    11.5 per cent of students achieved a study score above 40
These results put Salesian College ahead of our neighboring boys’ schools and indeed make us one of the highest achieving boys’ schools in Victoria.
