Welcome to Daylesford College
At Daylesford College we have a strong focus on academic success and a high quality curriculum.
Vision & Values
Our goal is to guide the students in our care to become confident, responsible, resilient individuals ready to make their mark in an every changing world.
The history of Daylesford College involves many name changes and is strongly connected to the story of Daylesford Primary School – at times they provided post primary education together, sharing teachers, buildings and management.
In the Junior School (Year 7 to 9), we prioritise depth of learning and deliver the Victorian Curriculum where it dovetails with our school community’s context. In the Senior School (Year 10-12), we offer the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), including the new VCE Vocational Major (VCE VM, formerly VCAL), and a variety of Vocational Education and Training (VET) subjects.
Learning at Daylesford College is inclusive, engaging, and ever-improving. It provides opportunities for growth and success for all learners across a range of learning areas. With a focus on positive learning behaviours, students are encouraged to reflect on how they function as learners and how it contributes to both their academic success and their personal growth well beyond their time at school.
Our multidisciplinary team collaborate with Springs Medical, Central Highlands Rural Health and Federation University to provide a Youth Wellness GP Clinic, AOD support and Clinical Psychology. We create a sense of belonging, and encourage all students to grow, learn and thrive.
