Welcome to Point Cook
At Point Cook College, we are committed to providing 21st century education. Academic rigour is valued at all stages with a consistent and high quality curriculum that develops individual pathways and realises the potential of every student. The Point Cook College learning community is underpinned by our vision of ‘creating tomorrow today.’
Point Cook P-9 College (Point Cook College) opened in 2010 as the re-location of Point Cook Primary School, which had operated on the RAAF Williams Point Cook Base since 1923.
Point Cook College is a Public Private Partnership facility in accordance with the Victorian Government's Partnerships Victoria framework. Partnerships Victoria is designed to combine Government facilities with the expertise that the private sector has in designing, financing, building and maintaining infrastructure projects. All education and school curriculum services will continue to be publicly delivered in line with state government policy. Our College includes many unique features including wetlands, an environmental science room, a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden and state of the art teaching and learning spaces designed in collaboration with Dr Julia Atkin. The College is in partnership with the YMCA for the provision of childcare facilities and our Middle Years outdoor education program.
The College runs ‘straight grades’ at all year levels whilst recognising the differences in stages of learning within a P-9 context. Our instructional model is based around all students spending the majority of learning time in their home room with their home room teacher. Our programs focus on developing the whole person – academically, socially, emotionally, physically. We scaffold learning to develop independent learner and provide various pathways so that our graduating year 9 students are ready for the rigours of senior secondary education.
