Kooweerup Secondary College aims to provide a caring environment, one in which young people will come to recognise their unique worth. The college has more than 1000 students but has managed to develop a personal approach. The college offers a broad curriculum, friendly atmosphere and high academic standards, a combination that attracts students whose parents regard good education as the basis for building a sound future for
their children.

Curriculum: The teachers at Kooweerup Secondary College emphasise intellectual development and worthwhile human endeavour. They are committed to developing the academic potential of each student through an inclusive curriculum based firmly on social justice principles. They understand that language is basic to all learning and that the greater the command of language the better the learning, whether it be in Art, History, Mathematics, Science, Commerce or Technology. The college is a stand-alone Years 7 to 12 co-educational secondary college on one campus. Students are grouped horizontally in year-level class groups from Years 7 to 12, although students can undertake VCE studies in Year 10 and join senior classes. It also runs a Selected Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL) Program for advanced Year 7 students.

Extra-curricular activities: A wide range of extra-curricular activities is available. All students have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, play in the college bands, or to join in the music festival or annual musical. The school also runs sports programs, outdoor activities, debating teams, an art exhibition, the Blackfish Oratory (public speaking competition) and English, science and mathematics competitions, equestrian teams, outdoor education and a camps program.

Student welfare programs: The college has a house system that enables students to work together across year levels in co-curricular activities. Co-ordinators look after students in each house level and are the first point of contact for students and parents.
