Essendon Keilor College’s Senior campus located in Buckley Street, Essendon is on the former Essendon High School site. Founded in 1913, Essendon High was prestigious and known for effectively educating young people for their time. Our commitment to understanding the future world of work, and innovating in light of it, means we’re still known for that today.
We provide a comprehensive range of courses in VCE, VET and VCAL to facilitate the aspirations of all our Years 10-12 students. Our specialised facilities and resources ensure students have all they need to excel whether pursuing studies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), the Arts, Languages, Design & Technologies, Sport or the Visual and Performing Arts.
Our stimulating adult learning environment fosters increased learning independence and equips students to succeed in tertiary settings. It is further enriched by the shared experience of our local and international students. A deep understanding and appreciation of diverse cultures gives our students a definite advantage in today’s interconnected world.
By educating both heads and hearts, our students are also still encouraged to uphold the school’s first motto: to ‘Live Worthily’. It’s one of our core goals because the world needs graduates, who, while striving for peak performance, live mindfully, ethically and in the service of others.
Transition to the Essendon campus is an exciting and seamless process for students from our East Keilor and Niddrie campuses, as well as the significant number of external students who enrol each year.
The campus is well serviced by all major forms of transport.
