On behalf of Mount Clear College it gives me great pleasure to welcome our current parents and students, together with potential new families who will be joining us in the future.
Our College provides access to secondary education at the highest level for Ballarat and surrounding areas. The College is set in attractive bush setting that boasts extensive facilities to deliver a comprehensive curriculum.
At Mount Clear College we are renowned for, and proud of our ability to maintain the friendly, caring approach of a small school, despite our student numbers being over 1000. We have teams in place that allow us to pay close attention to the individual, yet are large enough to offer a incredibly diverse range of pathways, programs and facilities. Our curriculum and teaching strategies are aimed at providing students with a positive, confident attitude to learning, to assist them in identifying choices available in achieving the pathway to their preferred future.
We have an extensive ‘Student Well-being’ structure throughout the school and our staff apply a restorative approach on a daily basis. This involves maintaining a focus on building positive relationships and establishing a supportive environment that is fair and consistent. This enables us to effectively monitor and support students at all levels of the college in regard to their individual and collective welfare needs.
I am proud to be the leader of a college with such amazing facilities that provides excellent programs for our students. I hope that as you explore our website, you gain an insight into the vast opportunities available to the students of Mount Clear College. Such opportunities are the result of a caring, dedicated and talented team of staff who work closely together to support students to achieve their best, and staff who value highly the success of every individual.
We know that our College is a great school and endeavour to ensure that all students have a happy and successful time at Mount Clear College, whilst learning the value and reward of striving for individual excellence.
Enjoy your tour around our website, and I invite you to register your interest in a personal tour of our facilities.
Earth Ed Centre
Earth Ed gives students the chance to be immersed in the Earth sciences and emerging technologies.
From everyday objects to the composition of the ground beneath their feet, students will look at their surrounds through a new lens of inquiry after a visit to Earth Ed.
Whether uncovering and reconstructing simulated fossilised skeletons from more than 200 million years ago using cutting-edge technology to predict damage caused by different magnitude earthquakes, or understanding the environmental and financial cost of our choices, Earth Ed stimulates students through engaging, real-world experiences. It’s programs aim to inspire and encourage students to pursue STEM-related careers.
