Neerim District Secondary College is a small rural college located about 20km north of Drouin and Warragul with an enrolment of 195 students. Situated in Baw Baw Shire, the college is located in one of the most beautiful areas in the State. The well-maintained buildings and landscaped grounds include playing fields for sport and access to shared community facilities.

The college provides a challenging curriculum for students from Years 7-12, which is taught by a dedicated, professional staff. The college has an excellent record of caring for students at all levels of achievement, and is proud of its well developed program for students with disabilities.

Students are encouraged to participate in a wide range of extra-curricula activities, including the college band, the SRC and an SES cadet program.
Facilities include an excellent community library, access to an indoor recreation centre, agriculture/horticulture centre, and computer, technology, music, graphics, photography, ceramics, and home economics rooms. A focus on learning technologies means our students have ready access to new computers in all curriculum areas. Students are currently beginning an environmental project to create a wetlands area on land adjacent to the college.

Neerim District Secondary College is a personal, caring school dedicated to the individual needs of students within a highly supportive local community. The college has a high commitment to involving parents, students and teachers in decision making.
