Auburn High School is the only Victorian government secondary school to be offering a Binational French program. Students in this program not only learn French, but learn in French according to the French National Curriculum. The Binational French program is a select-entry, internationally recognised program which offers students a dynamic and modern approach to language learning by merging French and Australian pedagogy in classes. The French Binational programme is fully accredited by the AEFE.[3]

Its school zone includes the affluent suburbs of Prahran, Hawksburn, Toorak, Armadale, Malvern, Malvern East, Caufield North, Burnley, Kooyong, Kew South, Hawthorn, Hawthorn East, Camberwell, and Glen Iris.

Auburn High School is a TAAS accredited SEAL school. The program provides highly capable students with the opportunity to complete years 7–10 in three years instead of four.

They may then be able to choose to do a three-year enriched and extended VCE program and a university enhancement subject in Year 12, equivalent to a first-year university subject.
