Your child will achieve the most out of their learning in the safe and supportive environment at North Geelong Secondary College.

The single campus is a creative, caring and diverse college where young people grow into autonomous learners by engaging with our imaginative and intellectually rigorous programs.

The Year 7 to 12 academic college community provides a friendly and supportive environment underpinned by the values of Respect, Excellence, Achievement and Diversity.

“We tailor programs to suit students’ individual needs and help students to develop their confidence, to follow their interests and reach their potential,” College principal Nick Adamou says.

The school places high expectations on student behaviour and academic endeavour, as evidenced by our outstanding VCE results and VM outcomes.

Specialist programs in The Arts, Information and Communication Technologies and Sports incorporating innovative curriculum design enhance the learning experience.

Students will enjoy learning areas with the latest ICT facilities, an extensive and well-resourced library, many state-of-the-art sporting facilities, and a creative art and technology complex catering to food technology, studio art, ceramics, woodwork and performing arts.

North Geelong Secondary College is proud to offer a range of specialist programs aimed at helping students get the most out of their education.

For academically oriented students, the Select Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL) Program provides a focused educational environment and a fast-paced curriculum with less repetition than mainstream classes.

Advancement Via International Determination (AVID) underpins the SEAL program and prepares students with the skills to succeed in senior and post-secondary education.

The Scholarship program promotes and recognises outstanding commitment by school students who strongly engage in their school community.

Scholarships are available in Academic Excellence, Student Leadership, Community, Sporting Excellence and The Arts for Grades 6, 7 and 8, and Years 8, 9 and 10.

Scholarships are also available for Year 10 students to encourage and support their senior studies in Mathematics, English, Science and Humanities.

The Excellence in Sport (EIS) Program develops students’ sport-specific skills, knowledge and practical application in their chosen sports of Australian rules, soccer or volleyball.

The unique and innovative Literacy and Numeracy program Strive to Achieve Results (STAR) identifies students with the potential to become future ‘stars’ and achieve outstanding results in Years 7 to 9.

The Achieving Core Education (ACE) program aims to improve the numeracy and literacy development of students performing below the expected level.

Students are also encouraged to engage in many extracurricular activities, including Human Powered Vehicle, Debating, Student Representative Council, lunchtime clubs and much more.
