Canning Vale College (CVC) opened in 2004 with approximately 400 students in years 8 & 9. The school population grew quickly and the second building stage was completed in 2006. In 2007 our first group of Year 12 students graduated from CVC. The third building stage was completed at the end of 2014 and in 2015 CVC welcomed its first group of Year 7 students. The school has continued to grow in size as more housing estates have been built in the area. At the start of 2015 Canning Vale College has almost 1700 students from years 7-12.
The motto of the College is 'Creating Futures.' To do this our staff focus on developing the knowledge, skills and values required to fully contribute to the workplace and society in general.
As one of the newest secondary schools in the government schooling system, Canning Vale College has all that is best in education. The facilities were designed for education in the 21st century and reflect the need to better cater for different children's learning styles.
