Our Beliefs

Respect, Learn, Achieve

Three behaviours, three dimensions, three values that Roxburgh College and its diverse school community strive for and represent. Roxburgh College is a Middle and Later Years (years 7 -12) Secondary School in the heart of Roxburgh Park, a relatively new locality in the Northern Area of Melbourne.

The present enrolment of 1,400 students indicates that it is a large school that consequently offers students access to a vast range of educational opportunities and ‘state of the art’ facilities.

The College works actively to promote a safe and supportive learning environment through its range of tolerance and support programs and a well established discipline process. Roxburgh College recognises the dual purpose of maximising the high academic achievement of each student as well as providing opportunities for their individual and social development.

The school promotes the all-round personal development and self-esteem of each student. We encourage the development of courteous, articulate and thoughtful attitudes. Teachers actively assist students to develop sound study habits in both the Middle Years (Years 7-9) and Later Years (Years 10 – 12) Mini Schools. A high standard of personal conduct is required and the wearing of school uniform is compulsory.

A wide range of co-curricular activities is offered including music, drama, academic enrichment, debating and sport. The school has a strong commitment to student leadership and Student Voice.

A comprehensive range of student wellbeing support staff is available to assist the educational pathways of students throughout the College. A variety of student support and development programs are offered.

In the Later Years (Years 10- 12) the range of VCE, VET and VCAL studies is comprehensive and unchallenged in the district with 51% of our graduating year 12 cohort receiving university offers and the remainder finding alternate pathways through TAFE or employment.
