Our lens is on boys and their needs. An Education at Lysterfield Lake College will challenge your son to become a goal centred, lifelong learner through our unique mentoring system, which focuses on character growth.
Our school starts at Year 3, drawing a substantial intake from our sister school Harkaway Hills College.
While you can find a comprehensive view of the College through this website, I encourage you to contact us for a personal tour or come along to one of our Open Days, scheduled each term.
ABOUT THE COLLEGE
Lysterfield Lake College is an independent school for boys teaching the Catholic faith.
In 2022 we will initially offer Grade 3-6 Classes. Year 7 will commence in 2024, and each subsequent year we will open a new year level through to Year 12.
The College is a Parents for Education (PARED) Victoria Foundation project. PARED's foundational principle is that parents are the primary educators, and schools exist to give parents every support. This support includes: the quality of the academic curriculum, the way staff work with students and parents in a unique mentoring program, the emphasis on character development and virtues in the curriculum, and in the care that taken to ensure staff and peer example is positive and supportive of family values. The shared goal is for home and school to be united. Ongoing support for parents is a priority, with various programs provided throughout the year designed to assist parents in becoming more effective and confident in raising their children through family life.
A PARED education emphasises the virtues developed through good habits as the building blocks of character. By learning to build strength of character through sound judgment, self-control, courage and respect for others, students will have gained the tools they will need to make good life choices freely.
As with the other PARED schools, the education we offer is highly personalised. Each student receives a personal mentor, selected from the school's teaching staff, who acts as a constant source of support, example, advice, and friendship. Mentors meet regularly with the boys during each term. In addition, at least once each term, parents are required to attend a mentor meeting to review student progress, help set goals, and coordinate the services of the College on parents’ behalf.
