We are an alternative education facility catering to students who have disengaged or are at risk of disengagement from mainstream education.

Taking the challenge . . . inspiring hope

​The Burnett Youth Learning Centre is a registered Special Assistance School (SAS), affiliated with Independent Schools of Queensland, situated on a 28 hectare farm just south of Bundaberg, Queensland. We are a Christian response to a local need and we are here to support young people who have disengaged or are at risk of disengaging from mainstream education. We offer young people the chance to learn in a supportive, alternative education setting which acknowledges and emphasises the unique God given value, goals and dreams of each individual.

What's the process?

Entry to Burnett Youth Learning Centre program needs to be made via a referral from local schools, Youth Justice Department or other youth agencies. Upon referral, a meeting will be held with the prospective student, parents and/or guardians, and a representative from the referring agency to determine the best support options and for the student to commit to the challenge of learning. If Burnett Youth Learning Centre is deemed to be the best option for the student, the enrolment process can be completed.

If you feel that your child may benefit from our program but are unable to obtain a referral through regular channels, please contact our office during business hours for assistance.​

Respect - Participation - Healthy Community

​The staff at Burnett Youth Learning Centre live by, and encourage students to adopt these values:

We respect ourselves, others, property and our environment.



We are willing to contribute and do our best while working towards achieving our individual goals.


Healthy Community

We value our community, our place in the community and care for others.


We encourage you to explore this website for more details about our Centre. There are also links to our Facebook and Instagram pages for up to the minute information.
