Comet Bay College is in Secret Harbour, Western Australia. It opened at the start of the 2006 school year at the premises now occupied by Comet Bay Primary School, but moved to its present location south of the primary school in 2007.
The college was initially a junior high school accommodating years 8 to 10, but in November 2007 it was announced by the Minister for Education that years 11 and 12 would be accommodated in 2008 and 2009 respectively. A $10 Thousand building program commenced in July 2009 to complete the senior school facilities including science laboratories, a lecture theatre, trades area and a fitness centre.
The school consists of a block for each subject, a gymnasium, a library, an oval, a cafeteria, a Performing Arts area, and an Admin area. The school has an Academic Excellence Program - Academic Talent Program (originally called ATP, then SAP-Selective Academic Program, then GATE-Gifted and Talented Education) which produces outstanding students, AFL football and golf development programs, Drama and Visual Arts extension programs, Music programs and a Media extension program.
The first stage of construction of the school was completed in May/June 2006.
The school's intake area includes all students of high school age from Secret Harbour, Golden Bay, Singleton, Baldivis, Karnup and a small section of southern Port Kennedy. Its feeder primary schools are Baldivis, Comet Bay, Endeavour, Secret Harbour, Singleton and Settlers. Students from the suburb of Madora Bay have the option of attending Comet Bay College or Mandurah High School.
