About the College

Geelong Baptist College is a modern co-educational school with 250 students from Foundation to Year 12. It is established on Christian values, has an open enrolment policy and consists of a small, close-knit community where parents, students and teachers work together assisting students to pursue academic excellence.

Established in 2002, we are a young and vibrant school, located in a lovely semi-rural setting, only 10 kilometers from the centre of Geelong and run our own buses.
