Arcadia College, like all Independent Schools, it is funded mainly with Federal Government funds topped up with State Government monies. We do not charge Tuition fees but charge $1000.00 per year levy to cover resources and food.
Arcadia College is a school for high school students who have disengaged from main stream schooling. Our Queensland registered teachers deliver the Australian Curriculum in a different way, the Arcadia way. The school is focused on academic outcomes set in a welfare- based environment. Besides our amazing teachers, we employ teacher aides and extensive mental health support through our team of wellbeing staff, youth workers, psychologists and nurses. Our students are provided with three healthy meals per day. There’s no school uniform, no school bells, no moving classes and heaps of mutual respect between students and our staff.
In 2016 Arcadia College purchased a 2500 sq. m block of land on Centerline Place, Robina for $3.025 Million. In 2018 approval was given by The Gold City Council for the plans developed by Gold Coast Architects Burling Brown. Alder Constructions were appointed builders of the $13.5 million three level 3000 sg m building with construction starting in late 2019. The school is on track to be completed in late 2020. The Commonwealth Government has provided $4.225 million in funding and the Qld State Government $1.365 million towards our new building.
