About our school

Catholic Regional College Sydenham is one of the largest co-educational Senior Catholic schools in Melbourne’s North West. A student’s destination or chosen pathway is a key aspect of education at CRCS.

We cater to those wishing to undertake studies in further education whether through the completion of a TAFE certificate, undertaking an apprenticeship or simply to transition into full time work. Our saying, “Every Student Every Pathway”, is what we strive for, ensuring that opportunities are provided for students to pursue their pathways and goals.

With over 34 internal VET courses offered, we pride ourselves on giving back. We do this through our 15 school-based Enterprises, run by students for our community.

We aim to equip our learners with the skills required for employment in the 21st century, while also seeing the light of God in all they do. Our commitment to our Catholic faith extends into our subject offerings and VET courses with many of our students attaining their Queen’s Scout Award through our VET Applied Religious Education program.

This links with our motto; “Faith Seeking Understanding” and we provide our students with a solid educational foundation through the lens of a Catholic backdrop.
