Nautilus College places emphasis on the strengths in provision of services to students.
The creation of a small safe, supported environment,
Staff work with students on a basis of empowerment, rather than a model of power and control,
That access through education allows the inclusion of other support mechanisms.
The College also firmly believes in the following key principles of our school:
The student is the centre of the education plan, and all plans revolve around the needs of the student educationally, emotionally and socially,
That there is rigor in the educational program provided,
Life Skills assist to remove barriers to education and employment.
