Gnowangerup Agricultural College was established in 1966 as a boarding school on the same site as Gnowangerup Mission. From 1974, child welfare authorities placed teenagers, including wards of the state, with the aim of providing child welfare support to the young people while they were at school. The Gnowangerup Training Centre (2006-2010) opened on the same site, however, it is not known if any children were placed there after the school closed.
