Blackwood International Community College

The outer suburbs of Melbourne consists of some of the fastest growing areas in Australia.  Urban growth requires infrastructure to support communities, including transport and education.

We’ve been working with parents in Melbourne’s north who have come together to form Blackwood International Community College, an independent P-12 school that will be located in Mernda.

The idea of Blackwood began when parents in Melbourne’s outer northern suburbs wanted a choice in education. Many of the parents and their children were deeply affected by the closure of Acacia College, which limited educational choice.

The committee and its directors have undertaken extensive work to determine the educational and governance models to deliver a sustainable educational facility.

We’re excited to publicly launch the crowdfunding campaign for Blackwood. Community is at the core of Blackwood and the crowdfunding campaign provides the potential to strengthen this involvement.
