Cornish College is a vibrant co-educational school community, with a commitment to excellence in teaching and learning. We recognise the importance of academic rigour, creativity and developing strong foundation skills for learning. Our size means our students are known as individuals and form strong relationships with peers and school staff. Located in 100 acres of natural parkland, our students enjoy learning, playing and exploring in nature’s classroom.
We educate for a sustainable future, embedding sustainability in our curriculum and co-curricular activities. Cornish College’s motto is Make a Difference and at its core is the development of independence, compassion and personal excellence in order for students to make a positive contribution within their community and globally.
The journey from ELC to Year 12 provides everything you would expect from a rigorous academic program and rich curriculum, and so much more. Powerful learning milestones across the year levels, often involving exhibitions and special events, have a lasting impact on students. Many of these unique milestones help students to discover their passions and a love for learning that stays with them for the rest of their lives.
Cornish College offers a broad co-curricular program including equestrian, performing arts, instrumental music, swimming, gymnastics, sport climbing and our unique golf leadership program utilising the Cornish Links campus golf course.
With our passionate and skilled teachers, well-rounded and able students and a wider community that truly supports and cares for each other, Cornish College can be the difference for your child.
The curriculum is designed for authenticity and depth of learning to ensure an academically rigorous program. Our reputation for developing the ‘whole child’ comes from a passionate and creative teaching team that guides and challenges each individual. Teachers provide a model of quality instruction using an inquiry based and concept driven curriculum based on the Victorian Curriculum F-10 and the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE). Students grasp concepts and big ideas that go beyond the classroom to extend their learning. This is how we provide true differentiation.
