Learning

Fintona is a place where girls achieve outstanding personal and academic success.

Fintona provides a diverse and challenging academic curriculum, where girls with a wide range of abilities are supported. Our girls consistently achieve outstanding VCE and NAPLAN results, placing Fintona among the best girls' schools in Victoria and the country.

With an average class size of 18, students have more one-on-one time with teachers who are willing to spend extra time with students to ensure the best possible outcome can be achieved.

To facilitate an optimal learning framework for our students, Fintona is divided into four smaller schools:

Early Learning Centre (ELC) - Three and four year old programs

Junior School  - Prep to Year 4

Middle School - Years 5 to 8

Senior School - Years 9 to 12

In addition to the rigorous, rich environment of the classroom, our students participate in many co-curricular activities  to support their personal development and growth.

Opportunities for building resilience, self-esteem and responsibility abound through leadership positions, overseas trips and exchanges, the Connections Program offered in Year 9, House activities,
special interest clubs and Life Skills.

Our aim is to educate students to be creative, independent learners with a strong work ethic who leave Fintona feeling confident, resilient, tolerant and optimistic about their future.

The successful career path of many of our past students is testament to the quality of a Fintona education.
