THE HAMILTON AND ALEXANDRA COLLEGE
The Hamilton and Alexandra College is a co-educational day and boarding school. We are extremely proud of our strong history and traditional values and equally proud of our outstanding facilities and innovative educational programs.
The College is highly respected as the prime educational institution in the local and regional community and plays an important role through its community work, leadership programs and co-curricular programs.
Day students commute from as far away as Warrnambool, Mortlake, Portland and Lake Bolac. Our boarders come from rural and regional Australia and overseas.
As well as our full boarding program, we also have a casual boarding and day boarding program.
The College is a member of the Ecumenical Schools System.
The College has two campuses, both set in beautiful and spacious country settings in Hamilton in Victoria’s Western District, a 3 hour drive west of Melbourne.
The Chaucer Street site is home to our Middle Years (Years 7 – 8) and Senior School (Years 9 – 12). It is very close to the city centre and many of the town’s sporting and cultural facilities.
The 14 hectare property Myrniong Homestead site is home to our Boarding Houses, Early Learning Centre, Junior School (Prep – Year 6) and Equestrian Centre, and it is located within easy walking distance of the Senior School. Myrniong (circa 1906) is officially registered as having significance for its architecture, wonderful gardens and historical association.
We are very proud of our outstanding results but our students leave College to embrace their future with so much more than a score that will open doors. They are well-rounded, happy students who are equipped with the skills and capacity to be the leaders and problem solvers of the 21st Century. All of our students can pursue exciting sport, music, drama, service and adventure opportunities as well as academic challenges.
