CORNERSTONE College encourages students to wonder, think and act.
Entering Middle School can be a tricky time for some girls and boys.
Students often feel pressured to know what the future holds as they plan their
pathways to university or a career.
But at the same time, they might be struggling with friendship groups, their sense of
self and confusion over how they should approach their learning to ensure they make
the most of all of the opportunities a Cornerstone education brings.
To be successful, students need to understand how knowledge is gained, how to
interpret it and apply it, and how to harness learning approaches in a rapidly changing
and technically advanced world.
This is made so much easier by the Cornerstone staff
who recognise and nurture the individual talents of our
At Cornerstone teachers are committed to inspire,
motivate and support students in their learning journey
and throughout their transition to adulthood.
Cornerstone College offers an extensive range of
subjects, allowing students to achieve their goals and
reach their desired career pathway.
Our aim is to encourage all students to wonder, think
and act. To take responsibility for their learning and to
develop genuine skills of critical thinking, creativity,
collaboration and innovation.
Our staff work closely with each child to help them
to develop their learning plan while also providing
opportunities for meaningful connections.
Our aim is to work in partnership with parents to create a
nurturing, caring and safe environment for all students as
they navigate the middle years of schooling and prepare
for a bright future.
We understand that choosing a school for your son or
daughter is one of the most important decisions you will
make as a parent.
We are currently accepting enrolments for Year 7 in 2019
