Located just east of the town centre of Denmark, the WA College of Agriculture is a 560 hectare working farm and educational facility for Year 10, 11 and 12 students, offering a wide variety of studies with an agricultural focus.
WA College of Agriculture – Denmark operates at full capacity with 140 students (95 residential and 45 day students) and 65 staff members which support three main areas: the classroom program, the farm program and the residential program.
The College is considered one of the leading lights in the achievement of educational and training outcomes for young men and women in a diversity of agricultural related fields.
While the majority of students are residential, there are a number of day students, and a dedicated bus service is provided to and from Albany.
From its early beginnings in 1942 on the site of the current TAFE campus, the College has evolved considerably and moved to its present purpose-built facility in 1999. The Denmark College is part of a consortium with four other Agricultural Colleges.
