Penola Catholic College was established as a co-educational Catholic college in 1995 as a result of the amalgamation of three former Catholic colleges located in the northwest region of Melbourne. The college is located on two campuses in Glenroy (Years 7 to 8) and Broadmeadows (Years 9 to 12). The philosophy of the college is built on Christian principles and is inspired by the example of service to others given by Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop, who is the college patron saint. She had a close connection with the Broadmeadows site as she established a Foundling Home there in 1901.

Facilities: Housed in both historic and modern buildings, the facilities include three sports ovals, two gymnasiums, tennis, netball and basketball courts as well as specialist facilities for Visual and Performing Arts, Science, Hospitality and Information Technology, Languages, Technology/Food, Wood and Metal. A chapel and Educational Resource Centre are located on each campus.

Curriculum: Students study subjects in all the Key Learning Areas from Years 7 to 10 with a range of electives offered in Years 9 and 10. More than 40 VCE subjects are offered in addition to numerous VET subjects and VCAL.

Extra-curricular activities: Creative arts, Social justice and spirituality, clubs and societies, enrichment and personal development, sport and outdoor activities, public speaking and debating.

Student welfare programs: The college offers a cohesive Pastoral Care Program across the year levels. Special care is taken with transition from Years 6 to 7 and a peer support program operates with Years 8 and 11 students to assist with the transition to the senior campus. A large Student Services Department caters for students with special needs, integration, ESL, special education and counselling.
