Ballarat Clarendon College
Ballarat Clarendon College has adopted the following statement: Throughout a student’s time at College our focus is to maximise their competence, skills and capacity so that, at the end of their time at school, when they stand on the threshold of their future, they can choose their “heart’s desire”
The College has achieved much in recent years in the arts, sport, service and academic areas and the staff continue to work with all students striving for excellence.
The College provides a balanced educational program catering for a diverse community. The 2012 VCE results placed Ballarat Clarendon College as the eleventh most successful of 500 providers in the state, and also the most outstanding performance of any regional school for the ninth year running. In addition to the mainstream academic subjects the College offers Vocational Education and Training (VET) subjects ranging from Agriculture, Building and Construction, and Engineering to Hospitality, Multimedia and Hair and Beauty. Such fantastic results are the result of the hard work and dedication by staff and students of the College.
Ballarat Clarendon College has 1315 students in Junior, Middle, and Senior Schools. It offers quality boarding education for 75 female and 75 male senior students from across western Victoria and Southern New South Wale in two separate areas on the Senior campus. The College also strives to develop the whole individual by maximising the boarders’ talents in all areas of school life: personal, social, sporting, spiritual and of course academic.
The Years Five to Nine curriculum focuses on developing students’ skills to become independent learners. Year Nine students spend a term at the Grassy campus on King Island effectively becoming short term boarders. This experience empowers students with skills of social competence and global awareness needed to actively participate in their world.
The co-curricular program includes options in the performing arts, visual arts, debating, sport, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and community service.

Families are welcome to make an appointment to visit the College and speak with the Principal, Mr David Shepherd, and meet other staff then you will see young adults on the road to choosing their heart’s desire.
