Edenhope College began as a P-12 school at the start of the 1994 school year following the amalgamation of Edenhope Consolidated School and Edenhope Secondary College. The College is situated in a picturesque setting on the eastern side of Lake Wallace.
The College enrolment has remained relatively stable at around 275, consisting of 115 primary and 160 secondary students. More than half the students travel to the College from the surrounding district on school buses.
The predominant occupation in the area historically has been grazing and cropping, with two new industries, blue gums and grapes being recently introduced.
Edenhope College is made up of three sub-schools. The Junior sub-school (Prep to year 4) focuses on success in literacy and numeracy, the Middle sub-school (year 5 to year 9) focuses on engaging students in their learning and the Senior sub-school (year 10 to year 12) focuses on preparing students for further study and vocation.
