Kardinia International College is a high achieving and highly respected Kindergarten - Year 12 educational institution. The College was established as a symbol of hope for the world, developing knowledgeable and compassionate, globally minded citizens who act as agents of positive and sustainable change.
The College is independent, coeducational, and non-denominational, providing a caring environment for 1900 day and international students.
The College is renowned for the safe, respectful, and inclusive learning environment, which enables students to thrive. We actively encourage our students to develop their social, personal, intercultural, critical thinking, and ethical (SPICE) skills and attributes that enable and inspire them to actively contribute to a more inclusive, respectful and peaceful, and sustainable world. As an IB World school, we offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP) in Kindergarten-6, a vertical curriculum based on the guidelines of the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority to students in Years 7-10 and both the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) and the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) in Years 11 and 12. In the Senior School, the vertical curriculum offers many advantages, as students' progress at a rate appropriate to their ability, rather than age. Able students can fast track subjects, while other students can allow extra time for consolidation. Some students complete the IB Diploma or VCE in five years, most in six. An extensive range of VCE and IB subjects are available.
The Senior School curriculum is further strengthened by our International Immersion Programs. Our Year 9 students can join our positive, life changing up to eight-week Chiang Mai program in Thailand. Students can also visit our sister schools; Gotemba Nishi High in Japan, Saint Alyre in France, and Discovery College in Hong Kong. Our world class facilities include Katsumata Centre with our 1500 seat theatre and gymnasium, Goodfellow Aquatic Centre with a 25-metre indoor pool and cafe, School of Performing Arts, Learning Commons, six ovals, six tennis courts, a 1560 seat outdoor Amphitheatre and much more. Our main, 22-hectare campus is in Geelong (near Melbourne), our Year 5, 11-hectare farm campus in Lovely Banks and our 2.5-hectare campus in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Kardinia International College is renowned for the outstanding results our students achieve in Year 12 examinations every year. We maintain a strong focus on academic excellence, pastoral care and developing globally minded citizens prepared for the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
