Arise Christian College is a school of Specific Purpose which caters for students with a diagnosed disability who encounter a significant barrier to learning and have not yet mastered their academic skills. Such students may have mild to moderate intellectual disabilities or have a lower level Autism diagnosis. Our core focus is as a learning facility which engages students in remedial literacy and numeracy while also speaking into critical life-skills and independent living skills.
A typical classroom structure consists of 10-15 students, a full-time teacher and an aide. We have small ability-based learning groups in our literacy and numeracy classes and use the best available programs and teaching strategies to differentiate learning for our students.
