Prep to Year 12; Early Learning Centre; Co-educational; Non-denominational Christian School Ormiston College, regarded as one of the finest schools in Australia, is an independent, co-educational, non-denominational Christian college, catering for students from Preparatory School through to Year 12. The College is committed to excellence in education, with a curriculum designed to provide a pathway for all students to graduate with a Senior Certificate and a University Entrance Score. Ormiston College aims to nurture and encourage an enthusiasm for learning transferable skills and processes which last a lifetime. Consequently, the curriculum at Ormiston College has been carefully devised to provide knowledge, contexts and experiences through which students can learn and grow according to their individual abilities, learning styles and interests. While focussed learning episodes still form part of daily programmes, the curriculum promotes curiosity and enquiry, decision making and problem solving, critical and creative thinking as opposed to rote-learning and passive acceptance. This philosophy is consistent from Preparatory School to Year 12 and each stage of the College aims to build on knowledge and skills gained in the previous one. Our focus is upon providing a broad and general education. Effective schools pursue the gathering of knowledge but also develop skills and attitudes and establish cultures that will influence students long after they have graduated from their educational institution. An effective school has many qualities but collectively these qualities must enhance all aspects of pupil achievement and development.
