Location Profile
McClelland College is a 7-12 college with a current enrolment of 950 students. The college is well recognized as a leader in the implementation of Personalised Learning. Often described by visitors as 'a hidden gem', when you first walk into McClelland College you will immediately notice the well-kept grounds and modern, spacious teaching & learning facilities.

Of course looks aren't everything. It's the innovative approach to teaching that sets our school apart. The passion that drives the award-winning teaching team is a dedication to Personalised Learning - delivering education that builds professional and vocational capabilities by building on students' individual strengths.

At McClelland we support students in the exploration and development of their individual passions and talents. Key sets of relevant life-long learning skills taught throughout the McClelland Academy Program (MAP) will enable our students to be skilled in IT development, Science, Media, Business, Performing Arts and Sport. The Victorian Government has recently allocated capital works funding to the College for a major facilities upgrade, with construction due to commence early next year.

The Elite Performance Program (EPP) is a select entry program aimed at extending junior year students in their area of passion. We design our curriculum so these students are spending more time using higher-order thinking skills and developing leadership capacity. This enables students to further increase their personal learning and continue to maintain learning above the expected level for their year group.

McClelland is also well-connected through collaboration and active partnerships with external organisations. To support the quality, reach and impact of our education, we constantly seek to improve teaching and learning outcomes through engagement with business and industry links.

The school has 91.5 full time equivalent staff, comprising 3.6 principals, 64.8 teachers and 29.7 support staff and we continue our commitment to ongoing improvement for the benefit of our students.

College Values
McClelland’s College Values were derived from what students, teachers and parents thought underpinned success in life. We believe that COMMUNITY, OWNERSHIP and GROWTH, build together to support Success.
