Roxburgh College is a Year 7 to 12 co-educational secondary college that opened at the new Roxburgh Park site in February 2003. The school is built on a dedicated site set aside by VicUrban with Roxburgh Park Primary School on the adjacent block. The building program was completed in 2005 and the college was finally established on the one site. This followed two years of the college operating as a multi-campus college (with Senior School students at the Upfield site). The total number of students enrolled at the college has increased dramatically over the past three years. DE&T surveys and projections estimate that student enrolments will continue to increase in the next two years with a predicted enrolment of 1500 by 2008 as the Roxburgh Park community continues to expand.

The college represents a diverse and multicultural community. Approximately 65% of our students are recipients of EMA and about 79% come from families where a language other than English is spoken at home. There are 35 different languages represented and 15% of the students were born overseas. Roxburgh College is proud of its strong relationship with its multicultural community and celebrated its diversity through Harmony Day activities in 2005. The like school category is LSG 9.
