History:

Assumption College: An inclusive and transformative Marist community, inspiring one another to shape the future with audacity and hope. Cherishing the rich heritage of having provided a quality Catholic education for rural families for over 120 years, we appreciate and recognise our special place in the hearts and minds of the Australian community.


Description:

Assumption College is a Catholic coeducational day and boarding secondary school. Our 1200 students are comprised of adolescents from Kilmore and the surrounding towns, whilst our boarders (72 students) come from families who live all over Australia.


Features:

Our generous school property (33 hectares) allows for an amazing array of sporting fields, as well as a working farm. We participate in the Associated Grammar Schools of Victoria sporting competition, and operate a successful restaurant, staffed wholly by students, for the wider community. We are the fifth largest provider of vocational education and training (VET) for students, and are proud that our students go on to such a broad range of study, training and careers opportunities following their time with us.

The opening of the Fourviere Centre in term one was a significant moment for our school community in 2016. The resources within the building and the way the spaces encourage and allow for collaboration and creativity have brought a new dimension to learning at our school. Students frequently remark how the space makes them feel ‘like university students’, by which they mean that they feel respected and supported in their learning, and trusted in their capacity to use such a stunning learning space. The physical building supports the mindset shift that we began in 2016, responding in as many ways as possible to the individual needs of our students…to truly become a ‘student-centred’ school.
