Founded in 1893 by the Marist Brothers, Assumption College first took boarders in 1901, in response to the educational needs of the Catholic families throughout regional Victoria and New South Wales. Assumption was established as a boys' school and this continued until 1971 when the school became co-educational. Female boarding commenced in 1995.
The current principal is Kate Fogarty.
Assumption College is a Marist Schools Australia (MSA) school. The Marist Brothers still maintain an active interest in the school. Assumption has had a long sporting association with the Associated Grammar Schools of Victoria (AGSV) and for many years, was known as the "football nursery" in recognition of the large number of students who went on to play Victorian Football League and Australian Football League football.
As well as being tremendously strong in sporting achievements, the college has also produced many students of significant achievement in law, medicine, the arts, religious life and politics.
