Creative, caring and diverse

North Geelong Secondary College is a single campus Year 7-12 academic college.

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

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

The school community is a friendly and supportive environment, underpinned by the values of respect, excellence, achievement, and diversity.

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

Specialist programs in the areas of the arts, information and communication technologies, and sports, that incorporate innovative curriculum design, enhance the learning experience.

North Geelong Secondary College students are privileged to enjoy:

Learning areas equipped with the latest ICT facilities;

An extensive, well-resourced, library;

Plentiful state-of-the-art sporting facilities; and

A creative art and technology complex which caters for food technology, studio art, ceramics, woodwork, and performing arts.

North Geelong Secondary College is proud to offer the Scholarship Program, Select Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL) Program, the Strive to Achieve Results (STAR), the Achieving Core Education (ACE) Programs, and Excellence in Sport (EIS) Program.

The Scholarship Program promotes and recognises outstanding commitment by school students who have displayed a strong involvement in their school community.

Scholarships are available in the following areas: academic excellence, student leadership, community, sporting excellence, and the arts.

The SEAL Program provides a focused educational environment for academically oriented students.

SEAL classes incorporate a fast-paced curriculum, with less repetition than mainstream classes.

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

STAR is an innovative literacy and numeracy program unique to the college.

This program identifies students who have the potential to become future ‘stars’ and achieve outstanding results in Years 7 to 9.

The ACE program aims to improve the numeracy and literacy development of students who are performing below the expected level.

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

Students are encouraged to engage in a myriad of extracurricular activities, including human powered vehicles, debating, student representative council, and lunchtime clubs such as chess club, cultural appreciation club, Dungeons and Dragons, and Japanese club.

The transition from primary to secondary school is seamless for North Geelong Secondary College’s Year 7 students.

In Grade 6, all students are invited to the college early in the year for a ‘taste’ of secondary school, and later in the year there is a specialised two-day program that allows students to develop new friendships and familiarise themselves with their new surroundings.

Students start the secondary school year with confidence.

An integral part of the transition program is the Year 7 camp. The camp experience allows students and staff to build positive relationships in a fun learning environment.

These relationships build trust that fosters unity, allowing students and teachers to work together in facilitating teaching and learning.

Parents and guardians are welcome to visit and see the school in operation.

They’re promised a dynamic, high-quality government school for their child.
