Welcome and thank you for taking the time to learn more about our Phoenix community.

Our students are at the core of our school – their personal growth and what is best for them underpins every decision we make. One of the most gratifying aspects of my role is watching our students develop from young Prep classmates into driven and motivated students in their final year, fully equipped to explore their chosen paths.

We are dedicated to building aspiration and self-belief in every child and have a strong commitment to our school motto “In Knowledge there is Opportunity”. Our College values support and underpin all our interactions.

We understand that learning occurs best in stimulating environments that show our students they are genuinely valued. The College offers students state-of-the-art learning environments, with some real jewels; a 250-seat Theatre, purpose-built Science Centre and industry standard Trade and Technology Centre. We are currently in the process of adding more courts to our already impressive Indoor Sports Centre.

“An authentic learning experience extends beyond classroom education. We place significant importance on intuitively designed co-curricular programs that identify and nurture passion in our students.

At Phoenix, we believe that to truly enable a child’s growth there must be a dual focus on the equally important academic and social-emotional development of the child. To allow our students to achieve their academic goals, we embrace the importance of guiding them in their unique direction. We begin with comprehensive Prep programs and plan diligently right through to high-quality VCE, VET and VCAL programs.

Our mission is to ensure that there are unique offerings in each of the domains, student leadership, the arts and sport. We are confident that we offer a broad range of opportunities that are appealing to most young people. I encourage you to learn more about Phoenix P-12 Community College so you can experience our culture and enjoy our close-knit school community.
