Carinity Education Rockhampton is a small independent school from Grade 7 to 12 offering a supportive learning environment for young people who have found mainstream schooling unsuitable.
The school is made up of two campuses. The senior school (Grade 9-12) is located in Glenlee and the junior school (Grade 7 and 8) is located in Mt Chalmers. The Mt Chalmers campus is opening in Term 2 of 2023.
Carinity Education Rockhampton is governed by The Baptist Union of Queensland and is one of five schools operated by Carinity. At Carinity we believe in building communities where you feel secure and at home – a place where you are included, heard and valued.
Since 1949, driven by our Christian values, we have been providing communities of care, compassion and respect.
Our Christian values underpin our organisational values of Compassion, Respect, Excellence, Accountability, Team Work, and Engaging Positively.
Our school offers a culture of consistent, supportive and trusted relationships within a practice of “unconditional positive regard at all times”. We are here to walk alongside students in times of need and encourage them to achieve their dreams.
By providing practical education with individual learning support and a range of life skills, we help to provide purpose and direction to the lives of young people and pathways to become positive and contributing members of the community.
We build a strong sense of community among students and in the local area. Culture is honoured and celebrated, creating connection and a sense of belonging.
Students are able to achieve the Queensland Certificate of Education through the program offered at Carinity Education. As well as the opportunity to study nationally accredited Vocational Education courses at school or at TAFE.
