Principal's message


Welcome to Cairns Adventist College - a nurturing family-style school where your child is treated as an individual, not simply 'another student in the crowd'. Our mission is to maximise the whole person - spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional. Cairns Adventist College provides a genuinely safe and caring learning environment combined with a stimulating, technologically up-to-date program. Whilst our college has a small, family-type atmosphere we are big on the important things in education, such as actively engaging students in using the latest technology to enhance their learning. We place a big emphasis on the importance of our students acquiring solid literacy, numeracy and citizenship skills, as well as the ability to think for themselves.

Parents are very welcome to become involved at Cairns Adventist College and we value a strong partnership between home and school. There are many and varied opportunities for involvement in the life of the College and parents are always welcome and encouraged to come and discuss their child’s progress with staff members throughout the year.

Most importantly, each student is given maximum opportunity to grow and develop, and in return make a real and valuable contribution to society. We strive to develop happy, confident, competent, responsible, independent thinkers who realise their God-given potential.

I hope that as you take a look through our website and catch some of our vision, you will be inspired to contact us for further information about the unique and distinctive College we have in our beautiful city of Cairns. We would be truly privileged to provide for your child an education that incorporates "nurture for today, learning for tomorrow and character for eternity."
