Our Approach

The Learning and Teaching program at Cabra is student centred, evidence based and inclusive. We focus on creating a supportive and engaging space, fostering enquiry and appreciation of beauty, nurturing scholarship and a love of learning. We also understand the importance of taking risks, and making mistakes as essential parts of great learning.

Our students are able to choose from a rich and diverse range of subjects as they progress through different year levels. At Cabra, we do not ‘brand’ ourselves as a specialised school. We support each of our students as they seek to excel in the pathway for which they are destined. In essence, we achieve excellence in many different avenues and follow a unique path for each young person in our community. Our ATAR results are outstanding, a result of students having freedom and choice to study subjects that appeal to them, inspire passion and incite creativity and curiosity.

We know that students perform at their best when they are supported through new challenges, and at Cabra we provide an inclusive learning environment with high expectations and high levels of support.


Our new buildings have been designed to encapsulate ubiquitous learning. We know that our students live in a connected world where information is available online, anywhere and anytime. The new atrium, classrooms and learning spaces are designed on these concepts. We are blessed to have many of our past scholars return willingly to Cabra to help mentor and support our current students in the atrium after school.
