Message from the Principal

I am delighted to welcome you to Kilvington Grammar School.

Kilvington is an independent Melbourne-based Christian school of the Baptist tradition. We are open to families of all faiths or no faith. We offer a friendly atmosphere, a strong sense of community and a rich history, delivering comprehensive education from Early Learning to VCE.

Situated on one campus in the Melbourne suburb of Ormond, our School has been closely linked to the local community since it was founded in 1923. Thousands of students have completed their education at Kilvington, becoming part of a vibrant Alumni network in Australia and overseas.

A Kilvington education is based on four key pillars – Academic Excellence, Character, Community and Care.These pillars are interdependent to help our students become thinking, strong, caring and respectful people who once leaving school, will positively engage with and contribute meaningfully to the world around them.

Kilvington’s goal is to provide a comprehensive education within a safe and happy learning environment.

Our Mission is to inspire students to strive for academic excellence, and to nurture their aspirations in a caring, family-oriented community to become people of depth, strength, integrity and character.

Our Vision is to be a school of excellence offering a holistic education to girls and boys, enabling them to excel individually and as part of a community. We are focused on the mind and heart, and believe in promoting the intellectual, emotional, physical, social and spiritual development of each student.
