- Secondary School
St Joseph’s has a proud tradition of educating young men in the Geelong region for almost 150 years, with education on our Newtown site dating back to the establishment of St Augustine’s Orphanage in 1857. We are the only Year 7 – 12 boys’ school in Geelong and pride ourselves on being expert in boys’ education.
The College is one of over 50 schools governed by Edmund Rice Education Australia nationally and we are committed to the EREA Charter which incorporates the four touchstones of Liberating Education, Gospel Spirituality, Justice and Solidarity and Inclusive Community. We strive to be faithful to these touchstones in all aspects of our operation.
We aim to develop the whole person and have a broad curriculum much of which is based on the principles of Project Based Learning. We aim to engage students in a way which promotes and encourages excellence, builds self-esteem and prepares young men for the world beyond school. The College has a strong commitment to Pastoral Care and our wellbeing policies and procedures are based on the principles of restorative practice. We promote student voice and encourage the participation of students in a range of activities that promote and encourage leadership.
In addition to the Edmund Rice campus in Newtown, our Westcourt Campus in Geelong West provides our Year 9 students with a program specifically tailored to their needs.
