Year 7 - 12

Marcellin College is a leading Catholic secondary school for boys conducted by the Marist Brothers since 1950. We are guided by the educational and spiritual philosophies of St Marcellin Champagnat. Our tradition, embraced by all in our community, promotes unconditional respect, a love of learning and the personal growth of each individual within a cooperative and supportive faith community. In outlining his pastoral approach to students, Saint Marcellin stated, “We must love them and love them all equally”. Marcellin promotes excellence in learning by providing rich and varied educational opportunities and an environment where students, parents and staff work together in a family spirit of cooperation. Our College’s motto: Virtute Ad Altissima means “through virtue and courage to strive for the highest”. Our motto comes alive every day as we challenge our students to constantly aspire for excellence in all that they do.

Marcellin offers a comprehensive and progressive curriculum with an emphasis on engaging spirit, mind and body. Learning is designed to be real and purposeful with relevant application to everyday life. Co-operation, independence, reflection and critical thinking are intrinsic features of learning. There is a strong emphasis on integrated curriculum and enquiry based learning at the junior levels.

The College offers a rich range of co-curricular opportunities in sport, debating, public speaking, music, drama and student leadership. Our many musical ensembles include string orchestras and quartets, concert bands, stage bands, brass and the symphonic orchestra. Marcellin enjoys a strong Arts reputation in the community and our annual musical is always a highlight.

The College strives to create a rich and diverse learning environment which focuses on developing the ‘whole person’. We provide a comprehensive pastoral and transition program which supports our boys as they enter and until they exit the College. Marcellin values positive relationships and partnerships between the College, the home and the broader community. The sense of belonging is enhanced by all students becoming members of a House and a smaller Pastoral Group.

Marcellin College is a Catholic Marist boys’ school that is the centre of a community of learning, life and faith. In partnership with families, we nurture our students as they grow from boys to fine young men.
We bring the Marist charism to all members of our community through the teachings of St. Marcellin Champagnat and the Gospel. We are a community where Jesus is known and loved, where each boy belongs and the dignity of all is respected.
We empower the boys in our care to embrace all opportunities spiritually, academically, physically, culturally and socially with a determination to strive for the highest with virtue and courage.

The College is a member of the Associated Grammar Schools of Victoria and Victorian Schools Rugby Union, providing competition in football, cricket, soccer, rugby union and athletics. Apart from the traditional sports, students can also access squash, tennis, golf, basketball, hockey, swimming, volleyball and cross country. An Outdoor Education program is offered from Years 7 to 9, and is designed to challenge our boys to develop a range of personal, interpersonal and practical skills.
