The Bowen College is one of our five accredited high schools dedicated to providing tailored and focused education for students who may be at risk of falling behind in mainstream schooling.

The Bowen College offers a curriculum catering for students’ academic, psychological and vocational needs. Our accredited high school is designed for young people as a transitional program. It is targeted at students who are motivated to complete their Year 9 course, Year 10 ROSA or students who need further opportunities to develop workplace skills in an alternative setting.

Academic Subjects On Offer

The Bowen College offers academic subjects in: English, Science, Geography, PDHPE, Construction, Mathematics, History, Industrial Technology, Work Education and Service Learning.

In addition, pastoral care programs, work ready activities, sporting programs and service learning projects complement the delivery of a flexible curriculum, which caters for students’ individual abilities, interests and needs.

the Bowen College Staff

Our staff know that not everyone can thrive in mainstream education.  Students choosing to attend The Bowen College may have been unable to thrive in the mainstream because they may be homeless, from a disadvantaged background, affected by substance addition, recovering from abuse and/or victims of bullying and/or trauma.  Our teachers aim to provide young people with the opportunity to achieve an education in an alternate setting. We do this by focusing on individual interests and skills and linking learning with those strengths in order to help them progress on their path to their own end goal.

The Bowen College is one of our five accredited high schools. Together, we deliver a holistic approach to learning and teaching that considers the needs of each student, helping them to develop resiliency and skills for life.

Youth Off The Streets operates five registered and accredited high schools over six campuses. For more information about the rest of our schools, please click here.


If you know a young person who will benefit from The Bowen College, please contact our School Manager, Melissa Davis.
