The Alesco program provides young people who are unable to find success in traditional educational models the opportunity to learn, grow and achieve success. We provide a smaller, more supportive environment that is more relaxed and non-institutional.

At Western College Alesco Learning Centre we offer students the opportunity to gain their Record of School Achievement (RoSA), just as they would in any other traditional school, or the Statement of Achievement (SoA) with our Year 10 alternative options. Both the RoSA and the SoA provide entry to Stage 6 where students can complete Year 11 and 12 transcript of study.
As well as the core school programs Western College Alesco provides a creche to help parents continue their education. Our flexible learning programs and dedicated teaching and support staff provide unique opportunities for successful educational achievements.
Western College Alesco Learning Centre will no longer be accredited with the NSW Board of Studies to nominate candidates for Stage 6 HSC or Stage 6 RoSA in 2017.
