Elwood College has a comprehensive instrumental music program providing students with the opportunity to develop skills, acquire knowledge and learn to appreciate music.  

In Year 7, all students learn an instrument, with a diverse choice of instruments, including voice. From Year 8 onwards, continued tuition is a popular option. Music Performance is offered as a VCE subject.

Basketball Academy

The Elwood College Basketball Academy is an optional, fee-based program offering professional coaching on site before and after school. The academy is proving hugely popular in its first year, with more than 60 students enjoying the sporting and social aspects of the program.

The Academy is a partnership between Elwood College and Chase Basketball (an initiative of Australian Basketball Resources). 


To further our students’ global outlook, studying a language is compulsory from Years 7 to 8. Students learn either Japanese or French from Year 7, and both languages are available in the VCE.

Studying a language can be one of the most rewarding parts of high school, with additional languages allowing students the opportunity to travel and work overseas as well as make friends with people from different cultures.
