For this is the way to the stars
Since 1861 we have challenged our students to Be of Courage. To have the courage to try, to speak out, to help others, to discover and to learn from the past. To develop a good work ethic and values through a broad range of learning experiences that will prepare them for a happy and successful life. For this is the way to the stars.
Boarding has been integral to the fabric and culture of The Geelong College since its inception in 1861. Boarding life at the College is designed to develop independence and to foster collaboration.
We believe that education goes beyond the classroom, with the aim to develop the most important skill of all: Learning to learn.
We are committed to understanding the science of learning and the art of teaching.
