About the project

We're building a new secondary school for Craigieburn.

Elevation Secondary Collage is a supported inclusion school. This means the school has been designed to support a higher number of students with a disability than a typical mainstream school. Included across the school are facilities that provide additional support, so that all students have access to the same learning and play.

We're building the school in multiple stages. The first stage, ready for term 1 2020, includes a building for specialist subjects (chemistry), a learning community (classrooms), administration building and hard courts.

Enrolments opened for Year 7 in 2021, increasing by year level in each consecutive year.

This project, designed by Billard Leece Partnership, was a finalist for ‘Best School Project Above $10 million’ in the 2020 Victorian School Design Awards.

Further information on the school can be found at its official Facebook pageExternal Link .

School Name

Elevation Secondary College was originally known by the interim name of Craigieburn South Secondary School while it was being planned and built.

The new name reflects its location on Elevation Boulevard, Craigieburn.

The Department of Education chose this name after consulting with local communities on the names for all schools opening in 2020. To reach a final decision, the Department considered this community feedback along with the guiding principles for naming a new school.

Possible names for all the new schools were initially shortlisted by school advisory groups, who considered factors such as public interest, relevance to the local area, and local First Nations languages. The names were also chosen to help reflect each school's unique identity, inspire local pride and make them easily locatable.

Funding

The 2017-18 State Budget allocated funding to buy land in this area for a new school. The school received an additional $24 million in the 2018-19 State Budget for construction. In the 2019-20 State Budget, the school shared in $624.8 million allocated for new schools.
