High school at Alesco

Alesco Secondary College is a small, secondary school where wellbeing and learning is in balance.

Alesco is a Latin word meaning ‘growth and maturity’ or ‘I am growing’.

Alesco Secondary College is a secondary school that believes that in order for students to have the greatest chance of success the two elements of wellbeing and learning must work closely together.

Alesco aims to reduce barriers to accessing education, so students are able to engage and participate in education to the best of their abilities, whilst gently challenging their potential.
Currently, Alesco Secondary College currently offers education in Grades 9-12.

As well as our sound programs of learning, which can lead to the achievement of the Higher School Certificate (HSC) we have a Wellbeing Program which provides students with long-term solutions for managing their emotions in a healthy and effective manner.
The school promotes quality education, whilst also guiding the students to become confident and capable individuals that are well-prepared for their journey in life.

Graduates of Alesco Secondary College will most likely move onto further vocational training or sustainable employment.

Each of our campuses provides a safe, supportive and positive learning environment for young people who may find it challenging to complete their education through traditional schooling. We offer smaller campuses so that strong trusting relationships can be built with both staff and peers in order to achieve success. Each of our campuses is focused on working with students to create programs that better meet their individual needs, including smaller class sizes and a more relaxed and comfortable environment.

Alesco Secondary College places emphasis on the engagement of the students and incorporated into our culture are the following beliefs.

These include;

  • Students are encouraged to be self-motivated. Therefore, there is no emphasis on being 鈥榝orced鈥 to go to school. Alesco is a choice;
  • Students have life experience which informs the way they learn. All students have different life experiences which mean there is no 鈥榦ne size fits all鈥 method. Each Alesco student, team and campus is unique;
  • Students like to be respected. The way we communicate with our students, involve them in decision-making and allow them to make choices regarding their engagement in the program demonstrate our respect for their growing capacity as young adults in our community.

The Alesco Secondary College also firmly believes in the following key principles of our school:

  • The student is the centre of the education plan, and all plans revolve around the needs of the student educationally, emotionally and socially;
  • That there is rigor in the educational program provided;
  • Students have the opportunity to experience an adult learning environment and undertake a NESA (NSW Education Standards Authority) based curriculum.
