Ballarat Clarendon College’s high expectations yield exceptional outcomes
Ballarat Clarendon College is a Uniting Church co-educational day and boarding school for students from Kindergarten to Year 12. The 1380 students come from Ballarat, country Victoria, Southern NSW and a small number from overseas. It has adopted the following focus statement: Throughout a student’s time at Ballarat Clarendon College our focus is to maximise their competence, skills and capacity so that, at the end of their time at school, when they stand at the threshold of their future, they can choose their "heart's desire".
The College has over the decade achieved the most outstanding performance of any regional school. It also strives to develop the whole individual by maximising the students’ talents in all areas of school life: personal, social, sporting, spiritual and of course academic. This enables our students to look at a range of career options with confidence and to choose their "heart’s desire".
The co-curricular program includes options in the performing arts, visual arts, debating, sport, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, chess, robotics and community service.
Year Nine students spend a term at the College's campus on King Island. This experience empowers students with skills of social competence and global awareness needed to actively participate in their world.
The modern, functional Boarding Houses accommodate 75 boys and 75 girls. First class care is provided by day school staff which enhances the learning experience. Access is also provided to facilities in technology, music, drama, art and sport.
Boarders are able to live in a place which is dynamic, yet very much a place for relaxation and care.
