VIC, Melbourne Western Suburbs
Catholic Regional College Sydenham was founded in 1982 as a Catholic senior school for students in the west of Melbourne. It is the largest of its kind in Victoria, specialising in VCE, VCAL and VET studies. In 2011, the Trade Training Centre opened on the College site, further enhancing the opportunities for students throughout the region.
The school is a part of the Catholic Regional College Federation of schools encompassing 7–10 Colleges at St Albans, North Keilor and Caroline Springs, as well as Years 7–12 at Melton. The founders of the school understood that inbuilding a specialist senior campus, students would benefit from having specialist teachers and the widest range of subjects offered.
A student’s destination or chosen pathway is the most important aspect of education at Catholic Regional College Sydenham. We cater to those wishing to undertake a higher education degree, complete a TAFE certificate, participate in an apprenticeship and those looking to transition into full-time work. The motto, every student every pathway, is what the school strives to achieve in ensuring that pathways and goals are achieved. Our dedicated, experienced and highly skilled student services and careers team are the crucial links in ensuring student success.
Catholic Regional College Sydenham is a community dedicated to educating the whole person. We work in partnership with parents to develop young men and women who are open to growth, committed to their faith and social justice, and who are religiously and intellectually competent. When our students and graduates demonstrate these characteristics, practising them in their daily lives, the school community can be proud in the knowledge that it has served them well.
The college, its staff and students, has continued to renew its commitment to excellence in Catholic education as we continue to embark on a new era of faith, seeking and understanding:
