Overnewton Anglican Community College (more commonly known as 'OACC') is an independent, co-educational, day school, founded in 1987.

The College has two campuses - one located in Taylors Lakes, Melbourne, Australia and the other in Keilor. Prep to Year 8 is available at both campuses; Year 9 is only available at Taylors Lakes Campus and Years 10, 11 and 12 are only available at the Keilor Campus. Canowindra is the name given to the Year 9 Campus (adjoining to the Taylors Lakes Campus) in honour of the Aboriginal custodians that owned the land prior to industrialisation of the area.

Students at the school are encouraged to become involved in a range of co-curricular activities that complement the academic program. Christian education is a core subject at all levels. Outstanding academic results have been consistently achieved at VCE level. Families are encouraged to take part in a Contribution Scheme, whereby they contribute 18 hours of service to the College each term. The school has participated for many years in the Rock Eisteddfod Challenge in both the junior, premier and RAW divisions. The current Principal is Mr James Laussen.
