The Geelong College is proudly a coeducational school, serving the learning needs of boys, the learning needs of girls, and the learning needs of boys and girls together.
The real world is not segregated and in coeducational schools, girls and boys work collaboratively, exchange ideas, learn from each other and develop greater understanding of self and others.
In classrooms, the coeducational environment adds a richness and diversity to thinking and expression to the benefit of all, and develops outstanding learning outcomes, both shorter term and for the futures of our students beyond the gates of the College.
In coeducational settings, girls and boys learn to lead together, whether that be through formal leadership positions or through more informal situations in and around the school.
They stand side-by-side in leadership, play sport, attend outdoor education camps, combine in music groups, perform in plays and musicals, and share recreational space.
By so doing, they build a sound platform for personal growth, peer connectedness, relationships with other people and the development of appropriate value systems.
Through all of these experiences, both girls and boys, are prepared for a world beyond the College.
