Facilities: Whilst focusing on the learning outcomes for students, the college’s priority for providing modern equipment and facilities is evident. Aside from the recently remodelled Music and VCE Centres, the college has a new Science Centre, a Wood Technology Centre and a synthetic turf playing oval. There are also specialised areas for Art/Craft, Home Economics and Textiles. The college library is currently being refurbished to serve as a modern Information Literacy Centre as well as housing a well-resourced Reading Centre. Additionally, the college has prioritised ICT and extensive computer equipment and laptops are available for student use. All students in Years 10, 11 and 12 have a personal companion ACER (laptop) learning device. Other students are able to access a fleet of laptops for all classroom activities. Teachers and students also have wide access to electronic data projectors and interactive whiteboards installed in many rooms throughout the college.
Curriculum: Students choose from more than 25 specialist VCE subjects including Mathematics, Science and Business Studies subjects. Other areas include Art, Drama, Music, Humanities, Computers and Vietnamese. The college also offers a number of VET subjects as well as the VCAL certificate.
Sport: All Year 7 to 10 students participate in a Physical Education class. Many select further sports subjects as electives and some continue these studies into VCE. Additionally, there is a wide-range of inter-school sports available to students of all year levels. The school holds a swimming and an athletics carnival each year, with some students going on to complete at regional or even state level.
Extra-curricular activities: Braybrook College has a very active Student Representative Council (SRC) with students from all year levels specialising in a portfolio of their choice. These include fundraising, environment and social justice. The college also runs a Leadership program, called Leaders of Leadership (LOL). Selected students work with the Wellbeing Co-ordinator representing the college at public events, acting as ambassadors for the school and assisting with a variety of programs. These students also undertake extensive leadership training activities. There are many school bands, a debating team, a drama club, sporting and public speaking opportunities available to Braybrook College students.
Student welfare programs: The college provides a friendly and supportive environment with firm discipline, encouraging students to meet high expectations. Counselling, peer support programs and a range of opportunities are offered to develop potential and help to fashion successful, happy students. A purpose-built Wellbeing Centre has recently opened.
