Gilson College is a co-educational school that provides values-based Christian education for students from Foundation to Year 12. We prioritise our students and their holistic development in becoming young people with the skills to fulfil their God-given potential. Our talented Christian teachers are proud to support students as they pursue excellence, both academically and across a diverse range of co-curricular opportunities available at the college.

Students are encouraged to see themselves as members of a community where they belong, where they can learn more about God and the world around them. Gilson College students are supported to establish and maintain respectful relationships with each other and are equipped to demonstrate responsibility for themselves, their learning, and their role as active members of the community.

Delivered within a Christian worldview, education programs at Gilson College align with the Australian Curriculum and meet Victorian Curriculum And Assessment Authority (VCAA) requirements for VCE. Our teachers demonstrate an attitude of lifelong learning in their own professional development and model what this looks like to our students in their learning spaces. Students are supported to see themselves as lifelong learners, actively engaging in their academic pursuits and remaining curious when exploring new ideas and perspectives.

Whether engaging with stimulating academic content, navigating new friendships, experiencing personal growth through our Learning 4 Life program or competing honourably in our sports program, Gilson College promotes the development of resilience and a growth mindset. These opportunities allow our students to explore new interests and develop their character, while discovering how they can flourish and contribute meaningfully to their communities

Come and experience our learning community for yourself by joining a tour or attending an upcoming Public Information Night.
