Students are encouraged to challenge their way of thinking, becoming confident, passionate and resilient, preparing them for their future careers. At ELTHAM, we educate students to not only achieve their academic potential, but also to become global citizens. Students have access to abundant learning opportunities and are guided by a community of exceptional educators. Educational experiences are supported by a technology-rich environment, including our own on campus Observatory and Hospitality Training Centre.
ELTHAM College is CRICOS registered to accept both Junior School and Senior School students, and our strong and successful International Program has been established for over 30 years. Our International Program includes long-term international student study, as well as reciprocal exchange programs and sister school partnerships in France, Beijing, Okinawa and Shanghai. We strive to ensure that our international student cohort is well balanced and makes up only a small percentage of the college’s total student population, to foster strong relationships with local students and the local community and provide a truly immersive experience.
Our College Campus is located in the suburb of Research, approximately 45kms from Melbourne CBD and is very easily accessed by public transport. We have the benefit of being located on the fringe between suburbs and rural areas, providing an authentically Australian environment for international students studying abroad. Our grounds comprise of approximately 100 acres of land which house our school buildings, environmental reserve (with about 200 kangaroos on site), performing arts centre, sporting grounds, gymnasium and indoor pool.
