Equipping for greater opportunities

Carlisle Adventist Christian College aims to equip students with a twenty-first century education which prepare students for an unknown world. Many of our students will enter careers in their working lives that don't currently exist.

Our College offers a program for students in Years 7-11 which is designed to provide a positive and engaging learning environment. As a school we encourage each student to achieve success in reaching their personal goals.  We see our role as a partnership with parents who are working with us from home to achieve the best outcomes for their child.

The Board of Studies syllabus is delivered by caring and experienced teachers who have a proven record of assisting students to achieve their personal best.   The close and supportive working relationship between students and staff provides an atmosphere for individual accountability and achievement.
