Vision & Values

The vision at Beechworth Secondary College is 'Connecting Communities, Widening Worlds...' This means making the most of the advantages of our small size and location and providing a rigorous, well balanced education which will enable all students to develop to their full potential. Our extensive programs provide the opportunity for students to leave school with the personal skills necessary to continue learning and growing throughout their adult lives. We emphasise the importance of students being independent and responsible.


Beechworth Secondary College is committed to safety and wellbeing of all children and young people.  This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making.

Beechworth Secondary College has zero tolerance for child abuse.

Beechworth Secondary College is committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. Particular attention will also be paid to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Every person involved in Beechworth Secondary College has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role he/she plays individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people is at the forefront of all they do and every decision they make.
