We at CMC we have two types of students and families. On Campus (full time) and Distance Education (home educated). Even though we are not always all on campus, we are still a school community. We are active in pursuing a unified, cohesive, relational college community. 

Community Is Developed At CMC In The Following Ways

  • Regular parent – students – staff connection opportunities
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Campus Enrichment Program
  • College Newsletter & Community Section – This part of the newsletter is to build the CMC community, to get together, share great information for excursions and learning facilities, join support groups and get our students together for friendship and fun
  • Facebook
  • Work experience & mentoring
  • Pastoral Care for our students and families
  • DE ‘get togethers’
  • ‘All In’ excursions
  • Celebrations & Festivals
  • Connection to our local community via local churches, youth centres and retirement homes


Pastoral Care

  • Pastoral care begins with our Charlotte Mason philosophy. We work with the ‘whole child’. We are all here to support young people to learn, develop and mature on their path to adulthood. The young person’s wellbeing and emotional development is central to this journey.
  • Our educational philosophy emphasises the processes of ‘learning how to learn’ and ‘loving to learn’. Therefore, it is designed to inherently speak to, and affirm the student, and create a caring, engaging learning environment that is also academically rigorous.
  • Small classes with a maximum of 18 students per class enhance relationships between students and staff.
  • All staff meet daily to pray for and with each other, CMC students and their families.
