History

Forest Lake College was established in 1994 with 666 students. The College's enrolment has since expanded to 2,500 students.

It was originally a joint initiative of the Anglican Church of Australia and the Uniting Church in Australia and until 2009 was operated by EDUCANG Limited along with Mary McConnel School, The FLC International Centre, The Lakes College and The Springfield College.

In October 2009, sole ownership of Forest Lake College (FLC) and The Springfield College (TSC) was assumed by the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane and a new board was appointed to EDUCANG Limited.

Curriculum

Forest Lake College's curriculum includes individualized training in the academic, cultural, social, spiritual and physical domains. Forest Lake College's academic curriculum offers a range of science, humanities and vocational subjects.

Forest Lake College believes there are three discrete stages of a child's education:-

  1. the foundation studies of early childhood,
  2. the middle years of development and growth, and
  3. the final years of preparation for adult life.

The College structure reflects these stages of individual development, rather than the traditional Primary and Secondary Schooling distinction.[1]
