Warakirri College is an independent high school that offers innovative education programs for young people aged 15–22 who have disconnected from mainstream education, or do not feel comfortable in a traditional school.
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 for their Year 10 Record of Student Achievement (RoSA) or Higher School Certificate (HSC) in a flexible adult learning environment.
Our three modern campuses are located close to public transport in Fairfield, Blacktown and Campbelltown, and there are no fees or school uniforms. Students learn in smaller groups where teachers can offer personalised support, and our classes are culturally diverse with a mix of ages and abilities.
We also deliver Years 10, 11 and 12 via distance (online) education to further assist young people who are facing barriers that make it difficult for them to attend school in person. By enrolling in Warakirri's distance education program, students will receive:
- individualised support from a social worker
- a personalised education program developed by qualified teachers
- assistance with using digital technology
- access to face-to-face learning support
- the option to receive an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR)
- support with transitioning to work, training or further study.
Warakirri College is accredited with the NSW Educational Standards Authority to prepare students for their Year 10 RoSA or HSC. Founded by MTC Australia, Warakirri College is a registered charity which is funded by State and Commonwealth Governments, so our students do not pay fees, regardless of whether they enrol in face-to-face or distance education.
