It’s an exciting time to join the Catholic Regional College Melton community with major developments under way and a new name – St Francis Catholic College – launching in 2023.

Also scheduled for the start of the new school year is the opening of the college’s second campus in Cobblebank, which will cater for up to 200 year 7 students in its first year and grow to accommodate 1500 year 7 to 12 students by 2028.

Principal Marlene Jorgensen said the new campus would enable the college to offer even more students a high-quality Catholic secondary education, for which the school is renowned.

“Throughout this period of significant growth, our commitment to nurture the faith development of students, focus on their individual needs and strive to develop their academic potential remains as strong as it has for more than 40 years,” Mrs Jorgensen says.

“Our Year 7-12 Melton West campus, with its exceptional facilities and secondary pathways, is the foundation upon which our new Cobblebank campus will be modelled.”

Catholic Regional College Melton’s mission is to nurture each individual’s personal, spiritual, social, physical, and academic growth in a community of faith.

“We want to develop our young people to become successful lifelong learners, confident and creative individuals and active, informed citizens,” Mrs Jorgensenn says.

Although its Cobblebank campus is still under construction, families are welcome and encouraged to tour the year 7 to 12 Melton West campus to see students and staff at work and gain an overview of the College’s facilities and programs.
