Guilford Young College is a Catholic Co-educational senior secondary college and as the only Catholic Year 11 and Year 12 college in this State, Guilford Young College occupies a unique place in Tasmanian education.
Live and learn in an exciting, vibrant College environment that nurtures self-confidence, resilience and participation.
Guilford Young College is set on two campuses. The Glenorchy campus is located at 76 Bowden Street, Glenorchy in the northern suburbs of Hobart. The Hobart campus is situated at 94 Barrack Street, Hobart on the fringe of Hobart’s central business district. Students are allocated to either our Hobart or Glenorchy campuses based on residential address.
Our students have established a record of exceptional achievement in their studies, careers, sporting and cultural pursuits and service to the community.
Central to our learning is a focus on the individual, excellence in teaching practice, equality and diversity of opportunity and personal challenge.
In this place of learning all are invited into relationship with God and each other. We are a welcoming, compassionate community that provides a safe and inclusive learning environment.
The College values critical thinking, the pursuit of knowledge and life-long learning. We promote positive futures and encourage members of our community to take responsibility for shaping their own lives and assist in shaping a better future for all.
Guilford Young College offers assistance for students who may require extra support to improve their literacy, numeracy or general learning skills. Life skills, community access, social skills and extension and transition programs can be catered for within our wide range of supported courses as well as through individualised and tailored learning plans where appropriate. Educational, social and vocational potential is fostered in an environment constructed upon the principles of social justice.
We offer over twenty Arts subjects. At GYC Glenorchy we are building a state-of-the-art Arts Precinct where you will find the best Arts facilities in the state. We will use the Arts Precinct as a hub for the Arts and all Arts subjects will be taught there. We will continue to run classes at Hobart Campus as well. We have amazing Art and Photography rooms at Hobart Campus and we have also have a Performing Arts Centre at Hobart which can be used for Drama and Dance. If one of your Arts classes is at Glenorchy Campus, we provide a GYC cross campus bus that runs between the two campuses four times a day.
At Guilford Young College we are inspired by our Catholic Christian values to live justly, be compassionate, care for the natural world, serve others in need and work for peace. Our young adult students provide service leadership through community-based projects and partnerships. Active volunteering occurs in class time through Religious Education electives, and through our College, Campus and House-based fundraising and awareness-raising initiatives.
Guilford Young College recognises that when making career choices, young people need access to information about a wide variety of career and study options as well as understanding their skills and personal strengths.
That's why all enrolled students at Guilford Young College are invited to book themselves in for a Career Counselling session with our on-site Careers Counsellors. Families of students are welcome to join.
