Unlock your child’s full potential


Grovedale College is inviting prospective parents and students to our Open Day on Thursday, March 16.

Our Open Day is a golden opportunity to explore the myriad of opportunities awaiting your child as they embark on their Year 7 journey in 2024.

The open day will showcase the college’s comprehensive curriculum, diverse pathways, and growth opportunities tailored to every student.

At Grovedale College, we pride ourselves on offering a robust academic environment that empowers all students to excel and reach their full potential. Our commitment to excellence is evident in our cutting-edge eLearning initiatives and curriculum development. We have designed a rigorous and challenging curriculum aimed at achieving optimum results for all our students.

Our curriculum for Years 7-10 is based on the Victorian Curriculum Standards, providing a strong foundation for further education. In Years 7-8, students engage in a common curriculum program with access to a wide range of learning areas including English, Mathematics, Humanities, Science, Arts, Technology, LOTE (Italian), and Health and Physical Education. Special curriculum-based events such as ‘Cultural Diversity Week’ and ‘Medieval Day’ offer students enriching experiences that deepen their understanding of themselves and the world around them.

In Year 9, our students participate in the ‘River to the Coast’ program, a unique initiative that fosters community engagement, goal setting, and exploration of the local Geelong region. This program, coupled with core subjects in literacy and numeracy, enriches all areas of the curriculum and prepares students for their future pathways.

Year 10 students at Grovedale College undertake a core curriculum while also having the opportunity to choose other subjects through our comprehensive Course Counselling process. This focus on academic success is further enhanced by a work experience program designed to provide students with real-world experience and insight into their future careers.

Grovedale College offers a wide range of subjects for all disciplines in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and the Vocational Education and Training (VET) Programs. Our unique Sports Academy and Fitness Centre facilities provide academic courses and specialist coaching in Australian Rules football, netball, and fitness, extending up to the VCE level.

In addition to our academic offerings, Grovedale College provides numerous opportunities for students to engage in extra-curricular activities. Our Instrumental Music Program, GAFFA the annual arts festival, and College Production are just a few examples of how we enrich the lives of our students and foster their talents and interests outside the classroom. Students also have ample opportunities to build their leadership skills through various roles and programs offered by the College.
