A Different Kind of School
Warakirri College is an independent high school for young people completing Year 10 and Higher School Certificate (HSC) studies. As a social impact initiative of MTC Australia, it’s a different kind of high school where students are encouraged to be themselves as they study in a flexible adult learning environment.
Warakirri means ‘to grow’. To help our students grow and achieve, Warakirri College offers an innovative program and a positive and welcoming space. Teachers are there not only to teach but also to help students build confidence, manage other challenges in their life and work towards their own learning, career and life goals.
Who is it For?
Warakirri College is for students aged 15–22 who have disconnected from mainstream education or don’t feel comfortable in a traditional school. Students can be referred from their current school or can apply directly to the college.
How it Works
Warakirri College is registered with the NSW Educational Standards Authority to prepare students for their Year 10 Record of School Achievement (ROSA) or the HSC. Founded by MTC Australia, Warakirri College is a registered charity which receives financial support from State and Commonwealth Governments, so students do not pay fees. The college has three modern campuses in Blacktown, Campbelltown and Fairfield, all close to public transport.
Students learn in smaller groups where teachers can offer more personalised support, and classes are culturally diverse with a mix of ages and abilities. Students have the opportunity to work on projects that interest them, gain qualifications and do work experience.
