About our school

Set one hour north of Melbourne, on 100 acres in Kilmore, students and their families value the beautiful and spacious facilities as well as the warm and kind relationships that their children form with each other and the staff.

Assumption College students are connected through multi-age home groups, known as Learning Mentor Groups, often grouped alongside their siblings where a strong bond can be formed between the Learning Mentor, children and their parents.

The innovative MyMAP curriculum focuses on “stage not age” learning, offering a vast range of offerings. As students enter their senior school years they can personalise their VCE journey with courses including the VCE, Vocational Education and Training or School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships.

Students can complete accelerated VCE studies within the MyMAP years and enter accelerated university subjects during VCE that contribute to their ATAR.

Subjects such as High-Performance Sport, with partners such as Liverpool Football Club, Essendon AFL and Netball and Cricket Victoria, are further ways boarding and day students find connection, along with an extensive co-curricular program and activities.
