The Lakes College (Blue Haven, Years 9 and 10) is an alternative high school dedicated to providing tailored and focused education for students who may be at risk of falling behind in mainstream schooling.

The Lakes College was opened in February 2017 and is is a member of the Association of Independent Schools, NSW. The school’s learning programs comply with NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). The Lakes College offers a curriculum catering for students’ academic, psychological and vocational needs. Our school caters for young people who are motivated to complete Year 9 or 10 and fulfil the requirements of the Record of School Achievement (RoSA). The Lakes College supports students who need further opportunity to prepare for transition to further education or employment. Pastoral care programs, work readiness activities, sporting programs and Service Learning projects complement the delivery of a flexible curriculum, which caters for students’ individual abilities, interests and needs
