Alesco Senior College

Alesco Senior College started in 2002 as Alesco Learning Centre -  a registered and accredited, non-government independent school specifically designed for the inclusion of young people who cannot or will not complete their education within a traditional setting.  The school offers grades 10-12 to young people of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens and the Upper Hunter.

In 2012 a decision was made to be clearer in our program’s aim and the title was changed to Alesco Senior College in 2013.

The school is located at WEA Hunter’s Laman St Campus, housed in the old Cooks Hill Public School building built in 1903.  It consists of 4 main classrooms, a computer lab, kitchen/wet space and staff rooms.  Alesco Senior College is also centrally located to the Newcastle Regional Library, Art Gallery & Museum as well as sporting facilities etc.

Alesco Senior College is unique in its blend of academic studies and case management approach set within a community based adult learning environment.  It is an example of formal education within a non formal or non institutional environment.  The school aims to promote education as a priority for young people, as well as helping to create better future citizens of our community through the development of the values of respect and responsibility for themselves and others around them.
