Thomas Carr College is a Catholic co-education Year 7-12 College located west of Melbourne at Tarneit. We are a friendly community where each person is valued and spiritually nurtured. In the spirit of Archbishop Carr, young men and women are encouraged to strive for excellence and are challenged to pursue justice in the world.
Our College is an innovative educational community, providing the latest technology, buildings and facilities. We offer an engaging curriculum which equips our students with the knowledge, skills and attributes for the future. Powerful learning is facilitated by dedicated staff who nurture faith and positive relationships.
From a broad-based curriculum in Years 7 and 8, to a comprehensive range of VCE, VET and VCAL courses, Thomas Carr College is committed to providing a range of programs, which will support all students in their future endeavours. Our Learning and Teaching programs provide an environment that offers all students opportunities to stimulate their intellectual curiosity, whilst developing their confidence in making decisions. This is achieved by emphasising that learning is the key to a successful journey through life, equipping our students with the essential skills, attitudes and values appropriate for a lifetime of learning.
In recent years, Thomas Carr has opened a country campus in Coragulac. The Good Samaritan Campus is a former convent located near Colac. In Year 9, students are given the opportunity to embark on a 3-week Country Experience using these new facilities. Our innovative and unique iD9 program provides a specialised curriculum that includes a 3-week residential country experience as well as an intensive city experience. Communication, Investigation and Personal Development are key learning emphases in the course.
In 2018, the College will introduce its Magis Program for gifted and talented students in Year 7. The Magis Program is designed to cater for the needs of the academically gifted or talented student who demonstrates above average abilities. Through specialist curriculum, well-practiced teaching expertise, and a developed culture of high expectations, students will be stimulated, challenged and motivated towards even higher levels of achievement. Each year, one class of students is selected to participate in this six-year program which is designed to enhance intellectual potential and development. Accelerated courses involve a combination of a faster paced curriculum and more complex and abstract material which encourages students to further develop their capacity for higher level thinking.
Students who strive for the Magis want always to do better. The quest of the Magis is to encourage young people who have ambitious goals and to challenge them to strive further than the mediocre. The Magis program endeavours to produce leaders, students who are always striving to see more, to love more and to do more.
We are now in Stage 3 of our exciting capital development works of our 10 Year Master Building Plan. Stage 3 of this plan includes doubling the size of our existing gymnasium to include two full sized basketball courts with retractable tier seating to provide for a show court, refurbished change rooms and a new dedicated weights room. The extension of the Fr Tobin Gymnasium was completed in March of this year. The refurbishment of the Fr Ray Administration Centre was also completed in March of this year. A state-of-the-art Performing Arts Centre is currently under construction and is due to be completed towards the end of 2017. The Fr Moran Performing Arts Centre will feature a 500-seat auditorium together with the latest technical production equipment, lighting and sound dedicated drama and music rooms and a recording studio.
