Cornish College has always offered something unique in education. The college values a sustainable future, engaging students beyond textbooks and encouraging them to consider how their decisions affect the world. Its 100-acre (40ha) setting provides Early Learning to Year 12 students with space to stretch their legs and their curiosity beyond the classroom.
Underpinning this is a holistic education that sees students engage deeply across disciplines, critically evaluating problems and finding creative solutions. Such skills are vital, says principal Nicola Forrest.
“At Cornish College, we develop the mind, the person and the intellect,” Nicola says. “Our unique learning environment and well-rounded education ensures our students become the best people they can be. Our powerful curriculum and passionate teachers develop critical thinking skills in our students, empowering them to make a difference today for a more sustainable tomorrow.”
The college offers a broad secondary curriculum. Students in Years 7 to 10 study core subjects such as English, mathematics, science, languages, humanities and physical education, and deepen academic understandings in electives spanning the arts, design and food technology. Inquiry-based learning means students apply knowledge and skills across disciplines.
The VCE program provides flexibility for students’ career pathways. Students can complete VCE subjects over three years, leaving space for well-being and important co-curricular opportunities. Senior students also enjoy a new Senior Studies Centre — a powerful learning environment meeting demands for global competencies.
“We’re delighted to share our philosophy with new families,” Nicola says. “Our open evening will be a fantastic way for future students and parents to see how we’re making a difference in education right now, and why this difference is so important.”
