About our school

Genazzano FCJ College is an all-girls’ day and boarding Catholic College from Prep to Year 12, with a co-educational Early Learning Centre for 3- and 4-year-old children. Founded on the principles of the FCJ sisters, we confidently innovate and adapt to a changing world by allowing students to grow academically and personally. The Junior School at Genazzano is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Candidate School, dedicated to providing a globally recognised education. This Primary Years Program (PYP) focuses on critical thinking, inquiry-based learning, intercultural understanding and a well-rounded education encouraging students to be thoughtful individuals. For students in Years 7 – 9, Genazzano offers a varied and academically engaging middle school education.

Our program nurtures both intellectual and personal growth, through a diverse curriculum and ample opportunities for extracurricular involvement. Students explore their interests and develop essential skills.

For Years 10 -12, Genazzano provides a number of pathways to cater to diverse interests and goals. Whether students choose a traditional VCE or opt for the VCE Vocational Major (VM) or Victorian Pathways Certificate (VPC), students are engaged in curriculum options designed to prepare them for a future beyond their school years.

Principal's Message

We provide holistic learning outcomes at Genazzano which ensure students are equipped with the important life skills they will need after graduation. We achieve this through staff and student collaboration, where together they explore the suitability of programs to enhance their relevance; and dashboards have been created to monitor student learning and progress. This distinct learning culture is future orientated and responds to the needs of 21st century learners, offering new pathways from ELC to Year 12. We have also redesigned our timetables to meet the changing needs of students and staff; and created integrated programs allowing for interdisciplinary studies.
