HISTORY AND LOCATION

St Albans Secondary College opened as St Albans High School in 1956, the year of the Olympic Games in Melbourne. The St Albans community has welcomed new arrivals to Australia since World War II, and this is reflected in the culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds of our students, as well as in the multicultural vitality of our community.

The College is located 18 kms to the north west of the Central Business District of Melbourne, within the City of Brimbank. St Albans is easily accessible by public transport, particularly rail, and by car being only a 20-30 minute trip to the city centre via the Calder Freeway and Western Ring Road.
