Holmes Secondary College is a senior secondary school with its campus located in the heart of Melbourne. In a school made up largely of international students, its core values are directly connected to its multicultural population, where respect for others is a key value in ensuring that students work together accepting their responsibility in creating a harmonious learning environment.

Facilities: The facilities of the Melbourne Campus, located in the city next to Parliament Station, are modern, air-conditioned and designed to support learning. The library resources are extensive and include the latest reference material recommended for each unit of study. A large common room is available to students for meals and relaxation.

Curriculum: The school seeks to prepare leaders for the changing business world. It achieves this mission by imparting knowledge of the various dimensions of business, underpinned by the foundations of English language. Holmes Secondary College provides a highly specialised program with a strong focus on business-related subjects integrated with common business themes. This curriculum strength provides both vocational and academic pathways to Business Diploma and Degree programs within the organisation or with other tertiary providers. In more recent times the school has also looked to diversify its curriculum giving students greater subject choices through both its Victorian Certificate of Education and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning programs in order to provide more options through the above-mentioned pathways.

Student welfare programs: Student welfare focuses directly on student’s rights and responsibilities, discipline, a safe working environment and mentoring through Homeroom — a co-ordinated pastoral program. Given the nature of the students, there is also a strong focus on general accommodation, guardianship and health care.
