About Braemar College

For over 30 years students, staff and parents have enjoyed being part of our caring, dynamic and innovative learning community.

Braemar College recognises the importance of effective engagement in the classroom and beyond, holding true to our Christian principles where all members of our community are valued.

We are a college that recognises every student is unique and their connectedness to others is critical. Our community is gentle and nurturing with a high value placed on the quality of relationships that exist between students, and between students and staff.

We understand that learning is individual and that students develop at different rates and in different ways. Our clear focus is on how young people learn and our programs are designed to meet the needs of different learning styles, talents and interests.

We encourage our students to excel in every endeavour. We recognise and celebrate their achievements while supporting them to constantly seek out and explore new avenues of opportunity.

Braemar College strives to equip students with qualities and attributes that allow them to achieve their potential in the College environment and beyond. We aim to provide a positive, rewarding and enjoyable experience for every student.

We are  a member of the Victorian Ecumenical System of Schools (VESS) drawn together by a commitment to respecting diversity of beliefs, and offering a vibrant, tolerant education.
