Galilee School is a registered, independent secondary school, designed specifically for disengaged and vulnerable young people in Years 7-10 in the ACT and the surrounding areas for whom the mainstream schooling environment has struggled to deliver positive outcomes.
As the only Special Assistance School in the Canberra region, we provide training, skill development and job-ready support for students transitioning to the workforce or to further educational opportunities. Our philosophy is learner-centred, strengths-based, relationship-driven, and restorative.
Galilee School offers a supportive and flexible learning program that aims to meet the individual needs of students. Our team of skilled teachers, youth workers and support staff are able to support students presenting with a range of learning abilities.
We operate two campuses in Canberra: one in Holder for Year 10 and one in Kambah for Year 7-9. We are also in the process of establishing a Senior Secondary College for Years 11 and 12, in 2021-22 (subject to all legislative and compliance obligations being fulfilled).
The school is also participating in the National School Chaplaincy Program (NSCP). This program is funded by the Australian Government and administered by the ACT Government.
