Our School

Mount Compass is located 59 Kms from Adelaide GPO. It is centrally placed on the Fleurieu Peninsula being approximately equidistant from Strathalbyn, Goolwa, Port Elliot, Victor Harbor, Yankalilla, Aldinga and McLaren Vale.

Our school is the regional focus school in agriculture. Junior school students regularly experience farm life in all aspects of their curriculum and are engaged in a quality environmental program linked to the adjacent swamp and forest.

A WORD FROM OUR PRINCIPAL

Teaching and learning within the Mount Compass Area School community is underpinned by our school values of Respect, Participate and Achieve.

We aim to develop students to be lifelong learners who are persistent in their learning, confident in their abilities, resilient to the challenges life brings to them and connected to the community and world around them.
