Inspiring Young Women

Genazzano FCJ College – A Catholic Day & Boarding School for Prep to Year 12 Students

Nurtured in the Catholic faith and the principles of the Faithful Companions of Jesus, Genazzano FCJ College is a school where young women learn to lead and inspire others, embrace life and go confidently into the world. Established in 1889, Genazzano is a vibrant and energetic community that seeks to positively influence all aspects of a student’s development. At Genazzano, learning and wellbeing go hand in hand.

Genazzano is not a selective entry school. The College celebrates difference and diversity, promotes inclusion and makes it a mission to provide every student with the chance to build upon her strengths, whatever her background. The College is located within magnificent grounds surrounded by lush green trees and flourishing garden beds. This beautiful environment provides many spaces for students to explore and discover.

A day and boarding College currently celebrating 125 years of Catholic education, Genazzano has an aspiration towards excellence as it strives to provide its 1180 students with the tools to be the best they can be. Today, every student who enrols at the College as a boarder is part of a long, proud and unbroken tradition. Genazzano remains Victoria’s only Catholic girls’ boarding school. Boarding adds to the rich tapestry of life at Genazzano and the College deeply values the contribution made by its boarders.

Home for the boarders is Hopetoun Hall, a period house in Camberwell that is located three kilometres from the College. It is a happy place designed to function as a family home, and the girls enjoy a wonderful camaraderie that develops into lifelong friendships.

The boarding house provides students with great support, including a dedicated psychologist. Social events, parties, formals, film nights, plus ski and beach trips promote bonding between boarders. Transition activities are organised early in the school year to welcome new girls.

Hopetoun Hall students are well represented within the College community as prefects, house captains, performers, members of sporting teams and recipients of academic honours. At the completion of their time at Hopetoun Hall, boarders are independent and capable young women who are well prepared for the next stages of their lives, wherever that journey may take them.
