About the business

Arethusa College (QLD) is an independent, co-educational school catering for students requiring an alternative to mainstream schooling. We are accredited as a Special Assistance School with campuses located across South- East Queensland

We believe in Doing School Differently, providing an alternate approach to education, and serving students who have been let down by an education system that was not able to flex and adapt to meet their unique needs and circumstances.

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.
