At Geraldton Senior College we provide distinctive education to students in Years 10, 11 and 12. We are the flagship public school centrally located in the heart of the city. We deliver academic, vocational, social, cultural and service programs for approximately 900 students. Many of our students come from diverse multicultural families with over 20% of students from Aboriginal descent. Numerous students board at the adjacent Geraldton Residential College with enrolments from families throughout the Mid West and as far away as the Kimberley. Most of our enrolments come from our feeder lower secondary school, John Willcock College. The diversity of the Mid West sees investment in mining, agriculture, fishing and tourism. Geraldton is rich with opportunity to support those industries and beyond. These opportunities are reflected in the programs offered at the College with students achieving their senior school certificate and either a vocational certificate in their chosen field or ATAR to enable a future of employment readiness or tertiary education. We also incorporate a number of engagement programs specifically targeted towards both male and female groups of students. Aboriginal students at the College enjoy the diversity and flexibility a number of these programs offer and as a result, rates of enrolment and successful completion of Year 12 by Aboriginal students are high. Our College vision is "to provide opportunity for all students to achieve their potential as contributing citizens in a global community." We certainly offer an array of options to suit student interests and career aspirations. In order to achieve this, we partner with Durack Institute of Technology and a range of industry, employment and further training organisations. Over the years the College has focussed on improving all subject areas and enjoys large facilities in Arts, Design and Technology and Science. The Geraldton Regional Trade Training Centre is located onsite and students are able to take advantage of programs offered through the facility. The complete range of opportunity offered at Geraldton Senior College is complemented by the development of the skills and abilities in our students who are led by experienced staff to help prepare them for what may lie ahead.
