At Heights, excellence is nurtured and the learning potential of each student is maximised in a culture of trust, cooperation and compassion. We promote a vision to provide education which inspires character and leadership, and we strive to lead the students along a pathway of values-based experiences in their learning, a pathway which we have termed 'The Heights Way'. This has been instrumental in creating a rich learning culture where values, character traits and leadership attributes are promoted amongst students and staff.
The College credo, 'For Excellence, For Greatness, For Christ' is consistently applied to all facets of the College. Heights College is proud of its well-equipped classrooms, technological resources, landscaped grounds and integrated curriculum across four sub-schools: Kindergarten; Primary, Middle and Senior.
