Welcome To Keilor Downs College
Keilor Downs College is single campus secondary college located on the north-western edge of metropolitan Melbourne. The student population (and the teaching staff) reflect the many different nationalities present in the surrounding community.
The college is recognised as providing a safe and caring learning environment with significant academic achievement, attracting students from a broad geographic area.
The college is an accredited provider for gifted education, being one of the few schools approved in Victoria to deliver the Department of Education and Early Childhood's (DEECD), Select Entry Accelerated Learning program (SEAL). The college is also expanding its 1 to 1 Student Netbook program, with all students having full time access to a Netbook computer for their own personal use.
A particularly broad range of Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) subjects is offered along with the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) at the Intermediate and Senior level. A wide choice of Vocational Education & Training (VET) programs is available for VCE and VCAL students and a 'Pathways' counselling process is implemented from Year 10.
The college conducts a DEECD accredited International Students Program (ISP) with students predominantly coming from Vietnam and China. A sister school program has existed for over 25 years, with Shiroi district schools in Japan, with an annual reciprocal visiting program.
The college has a specific student wellbeing structure and is divided into four vertical Houses. Each House has approximately 350 students from Years 7-12 and about 30 teaching and support staff. House management teams support students and teaching staff and consist of a House Leader, coordinators, a Teacher assistant and an Activities assistant.
We believe students learn best with a teacher who knows them well and most students are taught by the same group of teachers from their house. Students are assigned to a Home Group within their house and their home group teacher will stay with them for the six years of their secondary education, developing a real understanding of their abilities and learning needs.
A range of student leadership programs is provided across all year levels to encourage student participation. The House structure provides great opportunity for student leadership, with House captains and year level representatives elected for each year level, resulting in a youth parliament of forty eight students.
Every day is an Open Day at Keilor Downs College. To find out more, make an appointment for a school tour.
