FAQs

Where is Corner Inlet College?

Corner Inlet College is located at 615 Fullers Road, Foster. Our site is a picturesque rural location, overlooking Corner Inlet and Wilsons Promontory National Park. The school site provides opportunities for nature-based, and agricultural educational programs. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land and waters of Corner Inlet, the GunaiKurnai, Bunurong and Boon Wurrung people.

How much are the school fees?

The school fees in 2025 will be $4,200. The fees include all learning resources and materials, camps and excursions and a weekly shared lunch (Fridays). Additional costs may include student laptops, bus transport to/from home, optional uniform items, and interstate/international trips.

Can I schedule a school visit?

We invite families to come and see the school site by appointment. We have some construction occurring at present however families are welcome to contact us to arrange a site walk and share a cuppa and chat.

Are there going to be school busses?

A bus route will be created upon student enrolments being finalised. The school will have 12-seat busses which operate morning and afternoon. We envision 'bus runs' from Yarram to the East, Mirboo North to the North, Leongatha to the West, and Walkerville to the South.

Who is the school Principal?

School Founder, Jen Young, is the College Principal. With a career in teaching, school leadership and university lecturing, Jen brings years of experience and knowledge to this role. She has recently completed her Masters in Educational Leadership. Jen will also teach in these formational years. She will be supported in Administration by Abby Pettitt who has also been a founding board member of CIC. 

What are the Cycle dates for 2025?

Corner Inlet College operate with eight Cycles per year. A week-long cycle break occurs in the middle of each public school term. Dates for 2025 are being finalised and will be shared upon enrolment.

When will the school be built?

The construction of stage 1, including classrooms, amenities block and learning centre, will occur predominantly off-site, with buildings to arrive in November. Carparking and services such as power, water and septic system will be installed over the coming weeks and months.

How will the College consider the surrounding environment?

We are proud of the steps we’re taking to reduce our impact on the local and global environment during the construction and operation phases. Buildings will be energy efficient with features such as window glazing, energy efficient heating and cooling systems, efficient electric water heating, natural ventilation, LED lighting, water-saving fixtures on toilets and taps, high level insulated walls, floors and ceilings.
Native landscaping will incorporate drought tolerant and indigenous species. A native planting schedule has already commenced. We are returning vegetation to the site, forming a natural buffer and improving habitat and biodiversity. 50,000L of water storage capacity will be installed. A Waste Management Plan will be implemented and reviewed biannually to reduce rubbish and recycling produced by the college. The CIC ‘Nude Food’ Policy requests families to remove plastic food waste and use bins at home. Biannual waste audits ensure that efficient rubbish, recycling and composting systems are in place.

Will students be riding or walking to school?

Although Fullers Road is a well-used cycling route, we discourage students cycling and walking to school. As with other independent schools in farming zones such as Village High School, and Woodline Primary School, a new network of 12-seat school busses will operate.  The Department of Transport and Planning have considered the nature of Fullers Road and have endorsed our plans as carrying capacity is fit for purpose. A traffic engineer was engaged to design our on-site bus turning circle with appropriate on-site parking spaces to manage traffic movements on the site.
