The Geelong College
Geelong College is a co-educational day and boarding school with an enrolment of over 1300 students at two campuses. They have a Junior School (Early Learning to Year 3), Middle School (Year 4 to 8) and Senior School (Year 9 to 12). Their mission is to create outstanding opportunities for their community of students, encouraging and inspiring all to be positive contributors to our world.
Boarding is available for Year 7 boys and girls at the school. They have two boarding houses for boys and girls, which are home to over 90 boarders from regional Australia and from overseas. The warmth and ‘extended family’ atmosphere of both houses reflect the way they are internally structured and the friendly nature of students and staff alike who work and live there.
Their international students are well supported at many different levels, including academically and socially and emotionally, through the wellbeing program. The daily routines provide structure, such as study time and sporting and social activities. Teachers are also available after school and in the evenings for extra tuition.
They provide excellent food with varied, tasty and healthy menus daily. Their dedicated catering team serves meals in our historic dining hall.
The College's diverse program provides students with a well-rounded education experience, including project-based learning and mentoring to ensure the right subject choice and university selection. As a result, the College has a very strong academic record where over 99% of its students apply to leading universities such as Deakin University, Monash University, University of Melbourne or RMIT.
They believe that the students lead rich and fulfilling lives at the College. The richness, diversity, and camaraderie of the campus community cannot be fully conveyed in words or pictures; however, they are always eager to show off our school to prospective families and their students.
