Our Alumni

We have an extensive and proud record of our alumni continuing on to a wide variety of further studies and future careers. There is no single path that all our students take, as they have a strong sense of their individual interests and talents and are keen to pursue them in different fields. Our engaging curriculum ensures a diverse range of experiences and develops a lifelong love of learning in our students. Our students are broadly informed, and full of confidence to forge their path in the world. They are discerning scholars with a clear determination to embark upon the next stage of their journey, wherever that may lead. The entrepreneurial spirit is also strong in our past students, and several are pursuing self-crafted careers or have started businesses of their own. 

Recently, Steiner Education Australia embarked on a comprehensive research project to help both SEA and local schools better understand their audiences, and provide a foundation for building stronger relationships with government and educational services partners. 

The Alumni results gave insight into the enduring effects of a Steiner education and reinforcement of some of our core educational objectives: an overwhelming 89% agreed that ‘what I learnt is highly appropriate to later life’. 95% agreed that ‘attending a Steiner school has been an asset in my life’. 94% of alumni would recommend a Steiner school education.  Further details can be found on the Steiner Education Australia website.
