Glen Waverley Secondary College is committed to creating and sustaining a Learning Community where everyone continually learns and grows.
This involves: valuing diversity and learning to live together; embracing lifelong learning; creating personal futures.
Services We Offer
guiding the learning process
- scaffolding the learning
- explicit teaching of generic skills and attributes
- catering for, and extending of, individual thinking styles

These three processes develop and enable autonomous action, and promote the construction of personal meaning and conscious awareness.
Ultimately, powerful learning is that which results in a sense of self-worth and personal growth.
The College will, where required, support families in enrolling students into neighbouring schools.
Students may be directed to other schools even if they are able to demonstrate that they are now permanent residents in the neighbourhood area.
