Holy Cross College is a Catholic Co-educational College Kindergarten to Year 12, located in Ellenbrook. The College strives to provide a holistic education encompassing all areas of LIFE - Learning, Inter-relationships, Faith and Enrichment. Students are encouraged to be critical and creative thinkers to prepare them for the changing world in which we live. Holy Cross College is a leading digital school and has been awarded with recognition as a Distinguished School for innovation, leadership and educational excellence.
The new Early Learning Centre caters for children in Kindergarten, Pre-Primary, Year 1 and Year 2, aiming to foster the intellectual and creative development of these inquisitive young learners. The indoor-outdoor design of the centre, based on a Reggio Emilia approach, features spacious learning studios and soon to be completed creative nature playgrounds. Our Pre-Kindergarten Programme caters for 3 year olds and focuses on learning through play. The remaining primary school, Years 3 - 6, will be added in the coming years to complete the K - 12 College.
The Middle School caters for students in Years 7 - 9. In Middle School the focus is on meeting the adolescent learning needs of the students - helping them to establish their identity, encouraging their natural talents, encouraging resilience and respecting the importance of relationships. Students explore a range of subject offerings in addition to the traditional core subjects - Visual Arts, Music, Drama, Dance, Design and Technology - Woodwork, Metalwork and Plastics, Food Science, Robotics, Media and Outdoor Education. They are challenged to solve real life problems and become critical thinkers through Big Ideas, the College's inter-disciplinary learning programme.
Our Senior School is designed for students in their final years of secondary school. Learning becomes more specialised in these year levels as students focus on their pathways beyond school. Students can engage in courses designed to prepare students for university entrance or a TAFE/Vocational pathway, which may include out of school learning in addition to school subjects. Students are given opportunities to explore the world beyond school, so that they may embrace their ever changing world with confidence and optimism.
Holy Cross College is committed to challenging, celebrating, encouraging and nurturing the whole LIFE of the young people in 'this place of transformation in the spirit of the Risen Christ'.
'I came that they may have life and have it to the full' John 10:10
