Equity And Excellence

Marcellin College has an enrolment policy that does not exclude students on the basis of academic ability. At Marcellin College we aim to provide a learning and teaching program that fosters the notion of lifelong learning, developing the skills necessary for all members in our community to connect and interact with the real world.

We are committed to a comprehensive 21st century learning environment which reflects the individual interests and needs of our students. The curriculum is regularly monitored and enhanced to provide the best opportunity for each young man to reach his potential.

Working under the auspices of the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority and the Catholic Education Office Melbourne Marcellin College is implementing the Australian Curriculum via AusVELS in 2013. We also follow the Victorian Essentials Learning Standards (VELS) and the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), whilst offering options in VET and VCAL.

Our curriculum promotes equity and excellence and in line with the 2008 Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians, endeavours to provide all our students with the opportunity to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens.

Marcellin College is part of the mission of the Catholic Church and is a faith community where learning and teaching seeks the integration of faith, life and culture. Our Champagnat Chapel, St. Marcellin’s Hall, the Br. Placidus Resource Centre, The Fourviere Schools of Visual Arts, the Le Rosey Technology Centre, Marian House, Rivat House and the Br. John McMahon Performing Arts Centre further enhance our commitment to providing young men with significant facilities that allow them to explore exciting learning opportunities.
