THE LYSTERFIELD LAKE COLLEGE CURRICULUM
A consequence of the fundamental conviction on the core role of integral development is the concept of balance in the school curriculum.
An appropriate mix of subjects offered leads to the well-rounded development of each student. We educate the whole young man, not a specialist in a particular area.
The Lysterfield Lake curriculum seeks to develop two fundamental characteristics in each student: a critical mind and a universal outlook.
Critical thinking is developed through our philosophically sound curriculum and teaching that teaches students to form logical and well-reasoned opinions. Formation in the virtues of sincerity and intellectual integrity is key to developing this vital skill.
A universal outlook is primarily a consequence of broad cultural exposure and the capacity to see a common human nature at work in all forms of genuine cultural expression.
Each young man at Lysterfield Lake is held accountable for his studies and encouraged to realise that good education is significant and valuable to broader society.
