Aerie College, our first campus of a developing Residential Collegiate Community, has a focus on the two final years of the high school curriculum using an alternate adventure challenge learning approach to assist students who have not found success within the standard Government high School system. This leads forward into Vocational and Entrepreneurial Skills development.
We place great importance on team learning and building strong supportive relationships between team members.
We welcome and encourage whole family participation in the Collegiate Community events, especially during family vacation opportunities.
We especially encourage older family members, grandparents, older uncles and aunties, to join with our student's activities within our Collegiate Community Resorts facilities. We strongly encourage our students to actively invite older members of their families to participate in a wide variety of our activities and to develop a caring attitude towards their older family members.
A major part of our curriculum has focused on care services and the maintenance of close friendships and family affiliations.
Aerie College is within the long-established Apollon Motel in the centre of the very popular tourist and retirement town, Victor Harbour. Staff and students will be residents in a secure, first-floor section of the motel and will operate the Motel and all its services as a real experience education and training facility. Our students will be trained to provide the very best of industry services for our guests.
STUDENT ACCOMMODATION: The College accommodation is 4-share, secure, inside first-floor motel guest rooms, not accessible to guests for student safety requirements. Students service their rooms as part of skills training under the supervision of the college housekeeper trainer.
We are planning 8 weekly Houseboat Cruise, Summer schools on the Murray between Murray Bridge and Renmark to enable potential students and their families to spend time with us discussing and experiencing our learning programs.
Each cruise will contain essential riverboat skills, water safety, first aid training and a very enjoyable relaxing family holiday time.

If you can dream it you can do it.
