Arethusa College is an independent, co-educational school catering for students from Year 7 to Year 12. We are accredited as a Special Assistance School with 4 campuses located at Deception Bay, Spring Hill, Windsor and Barambah Creek.
Arethusa College provides an alternative approach to education for students where previous schooling in a mainstream setting has not been successful due to social, emotional, physical, educational, familial or situational difficulties. The College believes that engagement in education has the potential to empower marginalised students.
Arethusa's holisitic programs aim to re-engage and support students who are experiencing a wide range of risks, challenges and difficulties, aiming to establish a pathway to their employment. By providing flexible learning environments, with targeted and diverse curriculum programs, Arethusa College strives to support and develop its students, both physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually and academically. All programs are underpinned by elements of quality pedagogy, targeted literacy and numeracy development, 21st century skills, design thinking and the development of responsible global citizenship.
Arethusa College's aim is to provide Christ-centred education in an atmosphere of love, respect and peace - encouraging students to achieve their full potential. Our College prides itself on promoting staff wellbeing and support for all staff. The College acknowledges that quality education only exists where there are quality educators, and therefore values the contributions made by our staff. Our staff promote self-discipline, believing that the responsibility to change the future lies within the individual and is not found merely inside educational policy or applying unfair discipline.
