To better serve and lead schools, Catholic Education Melbourne is committed to building the internal capacity and capability of its staff by enhancing leadership. The focus of its endeavours is to provide customised support to schools, parishes and communities to improve the educational outcomes of all students and create sustainable communities of faith.

Factors which impact on parents’ ability to pay fees should not preclude access to a Catholic education.
Catholic Education Melbourne endeavours to ensure:
There is an increasing need to provide school services more efficiently and effectively. We need to continue developing strategic alliances and stronger partnerships with parents, parishes, local government, business and community services and explore options to co-locate schools with community health centres, kindergartens and activity centres.
In particular Catholic Education Melbourne has an opportunity to develop a rural learning campus and retreat centre on 600 hectares of iconic land on the Great Ocean Road at Wattle Hill – referred to locally as Moonlight Head. It is intended that the property be largely used for educational and formation purposes and as a practical expression of the Church’s commitment to spirituality. This represents an ideal opportunity to impart to young people a love and respect for nature and the spiritual in the context of the Church’s mission.
Over the life of the Strategic Plan 2015–2019, the Integrated Catholic Online Network (ICON), which has entailed a significant financial commitment, will be rolled out to all Catholic schools in Victoria to ensure that every student has access to the same educational opportunities and resources. ICON will build capacity across all Victorian Catholic schools and diocesan offices to support and enable students, teachers, school leaders and parents to work collaboratively to improve student learning outcomes.
