Genazzano FCJ College is proud to celebrate 129 years of history within Catholic education. It highly values its past and present students, its inspiring educators and its college community. Together as educators and parents, the college works to create a learning environment enriched by the traditions of the Catholic faith and the Ignatian heritage of the Sisters, Faithful Companions of Jesus. It is a college where intellectual pursuits flourish in a climate of excellence and enquiry. It is a community of faith; inspiring a passion for life, a love of learning and the courage and confidence to lead and serve others.

Its vision encourages students from ELC to VCE to approach life with optimism, to be creative learners looking for ways to contribute to society, and to be actively engaged with issues of social justice. Its co-educational three- and four-year-old Early Learning Centre (ELC) instills in young girls and boys the joys of learning and discovery.

The all-girls environment from Prep to Year 12 enables each student to take intellectual risks and focus on achieving personal success across a wide range of subjects and pursuits which include an extensive curriculum, quality religious education, diverse co-curricular activities, and social justice programs.

Genazzano celebrates difference and diversity, and is a non-selective entry school.  The college aims to promote inclusion and provide every student with the chance to build upon their strengths, whatever their background.

Facilities: Exceptional facilities are surrounded by beautiful park-like gardens, which collectively work to immerse students in a unique and inspiring learning environment. Students are located on a single campus which offers both Primary and Secondary students easy access to specialised facilities. The sporting facilities at Genazzano are of the highest quality and include tennis courts, Centenary Hall which features a full gymnasium, heated indoor swimming pool, sports oval and extensive grounds, enabling students to develop their skills in uplifting surroundings.

Boarding: Genazzano remains Victoria’s only Catholic girls’ boarding school, with a long and proud history educating and nurturing the wellbeing of students for more than a century. Boarding offers students a wide variety of positive and significant opportunities for personal growth and wellbeing. The Boarding House, Hopetoun Hall, is a happy and nurturing home that encourages the growth of faith, independence and social responsibility for students from various social and geographic backgrounds. Just three kilometres from the college, the off-campus location provides boarders with sense of ‘going home’ at the end of each school day.

Curriculum: Employing a ‘personal best’ model, Genazzano aims to identify the capacity of each girl and encourage her to set her sights ever higher. At every level of a girls’ learning, she will be challenged, stimulated and supported by a highly qualified teaching body. The curriculum offered by the college is up to date, well-researched and designed to suit the learning needs of all students. The innovative Performance Psychology Centre employs world’s best practice to promote wellness, resilience, development and optimal functioning.

Extra-curricular activities: Genazzano is home to an outstanding co-curricular program comprising more than 100 activities and offering students unique opportunities across many fields — music, sport and interest-based activities which include public speaking, debating, social justice and academic clubs.

Welfare and personal development: Genazzano’s Companionship Program provides a vehicle for students to connect with members of the wider community, to offer them assistance and gain a deeper appreciation of their needs. Regular national and overseas tours offer students a broad range of immersive opportunities through language and cultural experiences as well as creative arts, music and international sporting tours.
