Throughout its long history Shelford has enjoyed an excellent reputation for outstanding academic achievement and a wide range of extra curricular activities.
Shelford's great strength is its size. There are approximately 620 students attending the School and class sizes are relatively small. Students are given individual attention by talented teachers and girls progress to tertiary courses of their choice.
Students in Years 10, 11 and 12 study the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) which is administered by the Victorian Board of Studies. Many students study at least one VCE unit and commence specialist studies in Year 11. Very able students are encouraged to combine Years 11 and 12 studies.
Students in the past have entered a wide range of courses such as Arts, Business and Commerce, Engineering, Hospitality, Law, Medicine, Science, Technology, Tourism and Management and Visual and Performing Arts. VCE results are used by the universities as a means of selecting students into courses. The VCE is recognised by universities internationally. Shelford is proud of its close links with Monash University and The University of Melbourne.
Students wishing to enrol at Shelford in Years 7, 8 and 9 will be selected according to academic performance and attitude. School reports may be required and all students seeking enrolment will be interviewed. Students are required to live with relatives or in homestay accommodation.
