Rowville Secondary College is a co-educational, public high school, located in Rowville, Victoria, Australia. It is divided into two campuses, the East and the West. The Eastern Campus has students from year 7-12 in the Rowville Sports Academy and Rowville Institute of the Arts and students from year 7-9 in the General Excellence Program. The Western Campus has students from year 7-12 in both the Maths and Science Academy and the General Excellence Program. The college started off as one campus but in November 1996 the eastern campus was opened. In 2007, RSC added the Rowville Sports Academy (RSA) to its list of specialist programs. In 2008 Rowville Institute of the Arts (RIA) commenced and 2012 saw the introduction of the third specialist program- the Maths and Science Academy (MSA).
In keeping with tradition, Rowville Secondary College has four school houses within which its students will compete during Inter-house competitions.
The School Houses are allocated in accordance with the last names of students, so as to keep family members together, but also ensure adequate opportunity for students to encounter those outside their class and year level groupings.
In contrast to the naming standards at many schools which name each house after prominent sporting heroes, Rowville SC instead has four sporting attributes to inspire the students within.
The four houses are:
- Swift, Green house colours, for students' last names A-D
- Valour, Blue, E-K
- Spirit, Yellow, L-Q
- Power, Red, R-Z
