St Albans Secondary College opened as St Albans High School in 1956, the year of the Olympic Games in Melbourne.  The College is proud of its history as the original secondary school in the area, and of its continuing role as an educational focal point within the community.

St Albans Secondary College is located 18 kms to the north west of the Central Business District of Melbourne, within the City of Brimbank.  St Albans is easily accessible by public transport, particularly rail, and by car being only a 20-30 minute trip to the city centre via the Calder Freeway and Western Ring Road.  It is also in close proximity to Melbourne’s airports - Tullamarine and Essendon.

The St Albans community has welcomed new arrivals to Australia since World War II, and this is reflected in the culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds of our students, as well as in the multicultural vitality of our community.

Consistently strong enrolment figures allow the school to maintain flexibility in both staffing and curriculum, and thus to effectively address the educational directions valued by the whole school community.  St Albans Secondary College provides a comprehensive, broad curriculum, which successfully attends to the academic, social and individual development of our students, and addresses students’ vocational aspirations.

The College also includes in the curriculum, challenging programs in the performing and creative arts, sport and physical development, and information and communication technologies.  These programs enhance students’ learning in the eight Key Learning Areas, and together with intellectually rewarding extra-curricular activities such as interschool debating, student leadership programs, a university mentoring program, subject area competitions, and the TAFE Tasters program, students are provided with particular opportunities to develop their unique interests and talents.  In addition, the Individual Needs program supports the learning needs of students who require special support to achieve their potential.
