From the Principal


Warren Dawson



Welcome to Box Hill Senior Secondary College. The College is a Years 9-12 co-educational school, which was originally established in 1943 as a technical high school. The College is a “Senior College”, offering a range of curriculum and pathways programs. Unlike most other secondary colleges, Box Hill Senior Secondary College does not have a local enrolment zone, allowing the school to accept enrolments from across the system.  We also accept short and long term international student enrolments (please see the international student page on this website).

College Mission

Box Hill Senior Secondary College is committed to providing a rigorous and academically engaging program that will successfully prepare students for their future. Our College is inclusive and our diverse learning program focuses of the development of 21st Century skills and knowledge and being “Ready to Learn”. We view all students as being highly capable and we have high expectations for all students, in all facets of their school program.

Pathways and Programs

Box Hill Senior Secondary College offers a range of academic and vocational pathways opportunities including a full VCE program, Vocational Education courses (VETis), VCAL and specialist sports programs including Basketball, Netball, Australian Rules Football (including AFLW) and Athlete Development. The College is also committed to the development of new programs that will incorporate the Arts, Science, Technology and Maths as part of a STEAM program ready for implementation in 2021. Our personalised approach to education assists all students with planning for their future, as well as linking into University, industry and community partners and their respective programs. Box Hill Senior Secondary College has a long tradition of success for our students and we are committed to ensuring that this continues into the future.

Leadership and Student Voice

As the Executive Principal for Box Hill Senior Secondary College I am committed to supporting all staff in their leadership development and growth so that all of our students are supported to become resilient, creative and confident members of our learning community. We highly value student voice and provide students with on-going opportunities to build their understanding of the importance of social responsibility, planning for success, being active members of their community and in positively overcoming the challenges presented to them.  
I look forward to meeting you as part of a College tour, where we can discuss the pathways of opportunity and success for all students here at Box Hill Senior Secondary College.
