The school's core beliefs are contained in our teaching and learning statement: 'Every child can learn, and learn best by doing'. Southern Cross School caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 12.
In addition to mainstream classes, a distance education centre provides instruction for students in Years 7-12 who are travelling, isolated or cannot attend school for medical or other reasons. Where students are not able to access a particular course at their local school due to it not being offered, a single subject enrolment is permitted.
Two hundred and forty students enrolled in this category in 2000. Students with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities are enrolled in the school's seven support classes for Kindergarten to Year 12. Integration of support students and others with mild disabilities into mainstream classes occurs on a regular basis.
