At Calrossy we set paths that will bring about the most gain for our students. We offer countless opportunities, ensuring that everyday, every boy and girl are learning, growing and serving in an inspiring and supportive community.
The Calrossy journey starts in Junior School in a coeducational environment, where there is a focus on instilling a love of learning and ensuring a solid foundation for success. Calrossy creates purposeful, relevant and authentic learning experiences for these curious, creative young minds. This means the learning is real and supports success at every stage.
In the early years of Secondary school in Calrossy 7 - 9 students learn in single-gender classes, promoting courage and a ‘can-do attitude’ amongst our early adolescents. They develop their personal identities as young men and women and grow confidence in their individual strengths as learners. Students are encouraged to think, apply their knowledge and develop initiative through what sometimes can be challenging years.
Senior Secondary at Calrossy (Yrs 10, 11 and 12) are designed to prepare students as ‘life-ready’, equipped for employment and tertiary study beyond school. These years recombine in coeducational classes to prepare for their HSC studies and explore various industry pathways. Whilst Calrossy students have long achieved excellent academic success, developing outstanding graduates who make a difference, is also a central part of the focus.
Our Boarders are at the heart of Calrossy adding to our vibrant community. Our academic results are outstanding, with students regularly placing in the Top 10 in the State across varied subjects. However, our focus is not just on the elite but promoting success for all.
Happy, healthy, purposeful children from Prep to Year 12 doesn't just happen by chance, it is the product of dedicated staff and an established Wellbeing program that values and supports every boy and girl as an individual.
An inspiring education in an inclusive and accepting environment is the greatest gift you can give your son or daughter.
Take the journey with Calrossy!
