- Student Life
At Genazzano FCJ College, we are proud to be celebrating 131 years of history within Catholic education. We highly value our past and present students, our inspiring educators and our College community. Together as educators and parents, we work to create a learning environment enriched by the traditions of the Catholic faith and the Ignatian heritage of the Sisters, Faithful Companions of Jesus.
Ours is a College where intellectual pursuits flourish in a climate of excellence and inquiry. We are a community of faith; inspiring a passion for life, a love of learning and the courage and confidence to lead and serve others.
Our vision encourages our students from ELC to VCE 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. Like a child’s imagination, we believe that learning should have no bounds. Our co-educational three and four year old Early Learning Centre (ELC) instils in our young girls and boys the joys of learning and discovery.
Our all-girls environment from Prep to Year 12 enables each student to take intellectual risks and focus on achieving personal success across a wide range of subjects and pursuits which include: an extensive curriculum, quality religious education, diverse co-curricular activities, and social justice programs.
