Cohuna Secondary College services a rural town and the adjacent communities. Cohuna is situated on the Murray Valley Highway and on the banks of the Gunbower Creek, in an area that contains the red gum Gunbower State Forest and the Murray River. The area offers the potential for varied recreational activities and tourism. The community has access to a wide range of sporting facilities and offers a relaxed lifestyle. Cohuna is central to a highly productive irrigation dairying industry. The local community, through the Progress Association, is exploring initiatives to encourage economic growth in the district.

The College has extensive grounds (10 hectares), which provide both active and passive recreational opportunities. The review period has seen the completion of a building refurbishment. This has significantly modernized the appearance of the school and with well over $2m being spent gives a clear message that the school is a vibrant, active place and that it is here to stay.

The eight Key Learning Areas of English, Mathematics, Science, Technology, Language other than English (LOTE French), Health and Physical Education, The Arts, Studies of Society and Environment are emphasised in the comprehensive curriculum offered by the College in Year 7 to 12. Tuition through Distance Education supports the programs offered at the school.
