St Albans Secondary College
St Albans Secondary College opened as St Albans High School in 1956, the year of the Olympic Games in Melbourne. The College is proud of its history as the original secondary school in the area, and its continuing role as an educational focal point within the community. The St Albans community has welcomed new arrivals to Australia since World War II, and this is reflected in the culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds of thestudents, as well as in the multicultural vibrancy of the area.
The College is located 18 kms to the north west of Melbourne, within the City of Brimbank, and has a population of approximately 1000 students and 55 International students mainly from Vietnam.
