Castlemaine Secondary College is situated 110km north west of Melbourne. It is made up of a Junior and a Senior Campus with an annexe at Barker's Creek, catering for students under taking some innovative programs.  The College serves the residents of the City of Castlemaine and the surrounding district covering a total of 16,000 people, in the Mount Alexander Shire.

The Secondary College was created at the beginning of 1994, by the merger of Castlemaine High School and Castlemaine Technical College.  The former schools had provided a quality educational program for the youth of the district for over 100 years.  Over the previous decade, considerable discussion had taken place within the community about the benefits of merging the Colleges.  These discussions bore fruit in 1994 with a voluntary merger, uniting the traditions of the two schools into the new Secondary College.

The two main campuses of the College are situated five kilometres apart, at the northern and southern boundaries of the city.  The Junior Campus caters for approximately 560 students and the Senior 440.  A third campus at Barkers Creek supports a number of innovative programs across years 7 to 9.
