Guilford Young College is committed to providing a curriculum that affirms and promotes the individuality and giftedness of every student. At Guilford Young College, all students are encouraged to choose a subject mix that best fits their abilities, interests and future goals.

Our Pathways Planning process of tutors working with students assists in decision making and goal setting.

The College has a strong academic tradition and a long-standing record of success. We have high expectations of all our students and the pace of work is sustained and challenging. Programs available to students reflect their growing maturity and support their transition to post-school life.

Our handbook outlines more than 100 Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) and Vocational Education & Training (VET) courses that support both the entrance to university and other tertiary studies or provide practical industry training in areas including Business, Hospitality, Tourism, Automotive, Engineering, Information Technology, Children’s Services and Sport and Recreation.

Students from Guilford Young College have followed career pathways into all fields of endeavour. Many have reached the heights of their field and continue to be role models for our current and future students.

The College was delighted to congratulate its first Rhodes Scholar when Emilie McDonnell as announced as the 2016 recipient of the prestigious award.  The announcement was made by Her Excellency Professor the Honourable Kate Warner AM, the Governor of Tasmania, on 28 October, at Government House.
