St Mary Mackillop College
Phone: (08) 9752 7500 Address: MacKillop Avenue, off College Avenue, West Busselton WA

St Joseph’s School was established in 1922, the first dedicated primary school buildings were officially opened in Busselton in 1954 and moved to its current location in 1987. In 1994, with strong support from the parish and community, MacKillop Catholic College was built on adjoining land as the first Catholic secondary school in the region, attracting families from Busselton, Vasse, Dunsborough, Margaret River, Cowaramup, Capel, Yallingup, Nannup and Augusta. In 2014 St Joseph’s School and MacKillop Catholic College began the process of amalgamation to create an outstanding co-educational K-12 Catholic College. St Mary MacKillop College opened in 2016, with over 1,200 students from Kindergarten to Year 12.
Cornerstone Christian College
Phone: (08) 9754 1144 Address: Grace Court, West Busselton WA
In 1984 a group of parents got together around a vision to provide quality Christian education for their children. As a result, Cornerstone Christian College was founded in 1986 with a total of 17 students enrolled. Today Cornerstone is a fully integrated co-educational K-12 Christian college with approximately 540 students. Featuring modern facilities, Cornerstone delivers a proven academic program by combining a Christ centred curriculum with high quality education; developing award winning students and strong leaders with character and integrity that are critical thinkers, able to serve others, engage with their community, critique their world and make a positive difference to society. Since its founding in 1986, there has been a strong focus on the importance of working in partnership with parents, based on a mutual understanding of a shared responsibility for the education of the children. Cornerstone has likewise been very intentional in fostering and sustaining a close knit community, reflected in a strong sense of connectedness and ownership. Today this is one of the great hallmarks of the College. Since 2003 Cornerstone has operated with an open enrolment policy, meaning that anyone can enrol and attend the College; regardless of gender, religious beliefs, and socio-economic, ethnic and/or cultural background. However, as a Christian College, Cornerstone was founded upon and continues to operate according to a strong Christian ethos. The Christian worldview and faith is part of our very DNA and as such, this is a non-negotiable element.
