MACEDON Ranges secondary schools have been fielding inquiries from parents of students at Mowbray College, which has gone into voluntary administration with debts of $18 million.
More than 200 staff and 1000 students at Mowbray's three campuses in Melton and Caroline Springs face an uncertain future.
A number of students from the Macedon Ranges attend the college.
Gisborne Secondary College principal John Flanagan said numerous Mowbray parents had contacted his school wanting to transfer their children.
"Three or four student transfers have been formalised and there are about eight or 10 inquiries in total," he said.
"Most of them are from our immediate Gisborne area and we'll be giving priority to those people."

Kyneton Secondary College principal Mark Ridgeway said the school had received a number of calls.
"The tough thing for senior students is to find a school that offers the subjects they want, a school which offers the same year 12 program," he said.
"We offer a range of subjects geared to the choices our students make, but the difficult thing to manage is timetables as they may not match."
Alan Rose, chairman of the board at Macedon Grammar, said it was hard to know what impact Mowbray's possible closure would have on Macedon Ranges schools.
"We can offer some places and we will help parents out anyway we can," he said.
The state government announced last week it would provide $1.4 million to Mowbray to allow its 276 senior students to complete their Victorian Certificate of Education and International Baccalaureate diploma assessments.
Tomorrow is the final day for Mowbray College students from prep to year 10.
