Crusoe College strives to work in a humane environment where the individual differences of students and families are acknowledged and respected. As a college it is our aim to provide an outstanding educational experience for all students and their families. The structure of our college allows us the opportunity to provide a small and comfortable environment for students while providing access to a broad curriculum offering due to the school’s size.
Teachers recognise that there is a wide range of knowledge that students bring to classes and that it is essential that our learning experiences start where the students are. From this starting point we then strive to improve each student’s academic achievement. To do this the school is working towards a model of personalised learning where each student is able to pursue their passions, needs and interests during their time at the college.
This process is led by the student’s advisor, the student and their family. Rather than waiting for the timetable to change to allow students to access subjects, the students drive the timetable structure to suit their needs and interests.
