Carrum Downs Secondary College

About us

Carrum Downs Secondary College is a vibrant community of approximately 900 students across Years 7-12. We strive to empower our students to create their future, respect each other and grow academically and socially. By actively teaching and promoting the College values of Respect, Integrity and Effort, we maintain a positive, caring and safe environment where every student is given an opportunity to demonstrate success.

We have a vertical House system, which sees students allocated into one of the four Houses when they enter the school, and remain under the guidance of the same House throughout their journey at secondary school. This promotes connectedness to the school and builds strong relationships between students, their family and the College staff.

Our passionate teachers follow a consistent lesson schema to maintain focus on academic success, as well as fostering positive relationships with students that support the emotional development of young people.

Students are presented with a vast range of learning opportunities that cater for their diverse needs and interests. These include performing arts and the College production, sporting teams, leadership programs and various education camps.

We look forward to sharing the Carrum Downs Secondary College experience with you and your family, and invite you to book a tour!
