Ballarat Clarendon College has served and provided educational opportunities to students and families in regional and rural Victoria for 159 years. Ballarat Clarendon College continues to strive to be a leader in making a contribution to, and a difference in, the lives of local community members.
The Regional and Rural Scholarships offer students the opportunity to join a school community that supports each student to grow and pursue their passions by discovering their full potential in a supportive learning environment.
Throughout a student’s time at Ballarat Clarendon College our focus is to maximise their competence, skills and capacity so that, at the end of their time at school, when they stand on the threshold of their future, they can choose their heart’s desire.
Our core values – learning, effort, responsibility, community and wellbeing – define the behaviours and attitudes by which we hold ourselves and each other to account. Clarendon is authentic in understanding the complex interplay of values, attitudes and responsibilities needed to build a just, fair society. We are passionate about optimising learning, growth and progress and supporting and improving the social, emotional and physical health of each person within our community.
At Clarendon, each student’s wellbeing is supported by focusing on progress in everything they do – from engaging with the knowledge-rich curriculum to living a healthy lifestyle, from actively participating in diverse co-curricular activities to serving their communities. We believe that students thrive in an environment where they are encouraged and supported by those around them.
Everything we do at Clarendon is in the service of student learning and progress. Clarendon believes that with support and encouragement, each student can experience success and reach their goals.
These scholarships provide the opportunity for regional and rural students to maximise their competence, skills and capacity so that they can grasp their future with confidence. These scholarships enable students, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, to join the Clarendon community. Financial constraints should not prevent deserving students from attending Clarendon.
- a permanent home address in regional or rural Australia
- sound academic achievement
- a commitment to their studies
- a willingness to contribute to the Clarendon community, and
- the desire to fully participate in the life of the school.
