History:

In 1978, the College began in four classrooms on the grounds of what was previously, Sacred Heart primary school. To make room for the College, the primary school was re-located to the north side of Winifred Street. 


Description:

Catholic Regional College St Albans is a co-educational, Years 7-10 school in the north western suburbs of Melbourne. At our school, families are welcomed into a Catholic faith community where respect, learning, support, understanding, justice and community are key values. Our students are encouraged to explore their faith, to care for others and their world, and to strive for their personal best. We have modern facilities, including excellent specialist areas. A strong approach to pastoral care helps to nurture positive relationships and ensures that each student is known, valued and feels connected. A rich and innovative curriculum focuses on literacy and numeracy, offers depth as well as breadth, and provides for individual pathways in Years 9 and 10. The College aims to engage, support and challenge students; to make learning active, purposeful and real, and to connect students with the world beyond school. We offer an extensive co-curricular program through the arts, sport and social justice initiatives.

The College is one of five schools which form what is known as the Federation of Catholic Regional College. The other Years 7 – 10 Colleges are located at North Keilor and Caroline Springs. The Melton campus is Years 7 – 12. CRC St Albans students complete their final two years of secondary education at Catholic Regional College Sydenham. At the Sydenham campus students have the opportunity to undertake studies in an extensive range of VCE, VET or VCAL courses.

A key factor in bringing the five Colleges into existence has been an unswerving commitment, by all involved, to the call to mission given by Jesus and carried by the Church. First expressed by the then Assistant Director of Catholic Education, Fr Martin in 1962, it enabled the original pioneers of the project to step out in trust and faith. Today this vision, symbolized in a single school crest, is entrusted to all those staff, students and parents, who follow.


Features:

Our learning spaces are modern and support innovative learning experiences. We have excellent specialist areas in Technology, the Arts, Science, Languages and Physical Education.

The College has a 1:1 iPad program in Years 8 - 10 and 1:1 laptops for Year 7 students. Extensive landscaping provides a mix of active and passive spaces for learning and recreation.
