At Arethusa College we Believe, Expect and Celebrate as we see our students move towards achieving their full potential. We Believe in our students; we don’t define them by their past experience but rather their future potential and possibilities. We Expect great things of our students; as a result we raise the bar, we invest and journey with them and we Celebrate our students; because they are absolutely worthy of being celebrated, as they step out of their comfort zones and towards the goals they set for themselves.
