Tintern Schools offer a unique learning environment for boys and girls to experience parallel learning at its best in small classes. Imagine coming to school every day to towering eucalypts and Australian native plants, the sounds of wattle birds and magpies, open space, quiet, and fresh air. Tintern provides a rich and engaging curriculum that builds a lifelong love of learning and personal, social and emotional growth for each student. This Tintern campus is comprised of an ELC for boys and girls aged 3 to 5; a Prep to Year 9 girls campus and a Year 10 to 12 co-ed Senior College. From 2014 the Prep to Year 9 boys will also be located on the Tintern campus. The dedicated Senior College for boys and girls ensures that senior students benefit from a mixed learning environment and social experiences that will equip them for tertiary learning and their life beyond school. In the area only Tintern Schools offer students three distinct pathways: VCE, VCE/VET (Vocational Education Training) and the International Baccalaureate. Underpinning this exceptional curriculum is an outstanding pastoral care program that ensures that each student develops important life skills such as teamwork, compassion, global citizenship, co-operation, problem solving, optimism and work ethic.

Information Technology laboratories with the latest software and equipment, science laboratories, two libraries, specialist visual arts studios, dance and drama facilities, music rooms with recording equipment and a gymnasium and pool complex complement an excellent curriculum.
