Be of Courage

For this is the way to the stars

We recognise the site of The Geelong College as a place of learning, community and engagement for thousands of years by the Wadawurrung people of the Kulin Nation. We respectfully take our place as stewards of this site, respectfully acknowledging all those who have gone before us. Since 1861 we have challenged our students to Be of Courage through their actions, thoughts and words, to work hard and to make a difference in some way every day. For this is the way to the stars.

Our purpose
Boarding at Geelong College

The tight knit boarding community at The Geelong College nurtures boys and girls from Year 7 – VCE to challenge themselves, develop independence, excel academically, and make lifelong friends.

We believe that education goes beyond the classroom, with the aim to develop the most important skill of all: Learning how to learn.


Scholarships for entry into 2025 are now open! We welcome scholarship applications from students who will make the most of the opportunities offered at The Geelong College, and who can make a positive contribution to our community.
