Welcome to the Cecil Andrews College website. I hope that you enjoy the virtual tour of our School and that afterwards you will contact us for further information.
Cecil Andrews College exemplifies excellence in education for all students. While our school is rich in heritage and tradition, rightly valuing what the past has given us, we are also an exciting and innovative future focussed centre of learning.
We aim to develop young people into lifelong learners and we are focussed on every student, every classroom, every day. This marries nicely with the Department of Education’s focus for schools.
All of our resources are invested in ensuring we maximise student outcomes and develop tailored, meaningful pathways for each and every student. We cater to academic students with our Academic Extension program and our ATAR courses in Senior School. We also cater for students who wish to progress into apprenticeships or further training through TAFE. We have comprehensive Vocational and Education Training offerings and well-established relationships with training institutions, tertiary institutions and industry partners. We are fortunate to be a part of the first Pathways in Technology Program (the P-TECH Program) which provides direct links with, and exposure to, our industry partners. This complements our STEM and Engineering pathways which are well established within the College.
Other programs include our long running AFL Academy and Specialist Performing Arts. These programs cater for students who are athletic or have a flair for the Arts.
We cater for students from diverse backgrounds and we also support our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students with programs such as the Clontarf Academy, Stars Foundation and Follow The Dream.
The College has a well-resourced Student Services centre with a range of services on offer to support the pastoral care needs of all of our students. We have also sought out energetic, highly trained teaching staff to be able to deliver the curriculum to a high standard.
Here at Cecil Andrews College we believe in building positive and respectful relationships which is further reflected by our growing Alumni group of former students who are opting to join in record numbers.
If you are looking for a high school for your primary aged child, then we would welcome a visit so that you can see and hear from us in person. We offer a comprehensive transition program to ensure our new Year 7 students feel welcome.
