It is a great pleasure to welcome people to The Geelong College, whether they be students and families visiting for the first time or past students and others returning after years away.
The Geelong College is an open and inclusive community of learners, serving the needs of young people and their families. We want our young people to develop curiosity, imagination and confidence in themselves. We want them to be compassionate and caring, thoughtful of others. We want them to think and problem-solve, as well as to develop independence, and personal and social responsibility. We want them to aspire to be the best they can be.
We believe in rich learning that extends beyond knowledge, to deeper understanding and the development of wisdom. So much of that happens through learning experiences and challenges, as well as through the guidance and encouragement of highly qualified, talented and passionate staff, eager themselves to further their own learning in the interests of their students.
We also believe passionately in coeducation, where girls and boys, and young men and women, learn how to learn and lead together in a respectful environment.
This website is merely a glimpse of the richness and diversity of the learning experiences at our College and of our community. I warmly invite you to come and visit us, to meet our staff and students and to experience the College for yourself.
Dr Peter Miller, Principal of The Geelong College.
