Genazzano FCJ College

Genazzano FCJ College is a Catholic day and boarding school, located in Kew, founded 131 years ago by the Sisters Faithful Companions of Jesus. Today, almost 1000 students from co-educational ELC to all girls Prep to Year 12 attend the College.
Our vision encourages our students to approach life with optimism, to be creative learners looking for ways to contribute to society, and to be actively engaged with issues of social justice. Our College enables each student to take intellectual risks and focus on achieving her personal best across a wide range of subjects and pursuits, including a very broad curriculum, diverse co-curricular activities and social justice programs.
Genazzano is home to an outstanding co-curricular program, with over 130 unique opportunities available, covering the breadth of sport, music, art, drama, technology, maths, creative writing, languages and social justice.
Why transition to Genazzano in year 5?
At Genazzano, our Year 5 students are offered diverse possibilities for learning and develop both independent and collaborative working skills. They are offered extensive opportunities across a diverse range of interests including music, sport, the arts, drama and social justice. A two-year fully funded music program is provided to learn an instrument in small groups, as well as belong to ensembles and perform alongside our experienced senior musicians. There are many leadership opportunities available, as well as participation in our compulsory after school sport program that gives students the chance to compete on a friendly basis in a variety of sports.
Our Companionship Program in Years 4, 6, 9, 10 and 11 invites our students to go beyond their comfort zone to spend time with members of the community who need support in one way or another. This develops their confidence and be challenged in a supportive environment, as well as making a positive contribution to our community.
A Genazzano education encourages students to view the world critically, to be discerning in their decision-making and, most importantly, to view learning as a lifelong journey.
