St Albans Secondary College aims to provide a safe, secure and supportive environment where students can learn and feel valued and respected as individuals. The school is divided into three Sub Schools each with a team of Year Level Coordinators who monitor the academic, social and emotional progress of students by liaising regularly with teachers and parents.
We have a wellbeing team, including a psychologist and health promotion nurse to meet the requirements and interests of teenagers. Our Whole School Approach to welfare and discipline, together with an emphasis on social skills programs, support young people in their development into caring and socially responsible adults.
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.
