Welcome to Parkville College
Parkville College is a specialist Victorian Government School that provides education to students who are, or have been, detained in custody, a secure welfare setting, or transitioning from these settings. Working in collaboration with the Department of Justice and Community Safety and the Department of Health and Human Services, we deliver education across five diverse campuses throughout Victoria.
Parkville College operates 52 weeks a year and caters to some of the most vulnerable students in the state. Providing education to students with diverse learning goals, and abilities, Parkville College individually tailors education to the student to give them the greatest successes.
Students become enrolled if they are detained in a Youth Justice Centre or a Secure Welfare Service (SWS) within Victoria. While enrolment numbers fluctuate daily, the school typically provides education to around 300 students on any given day.
