School of Distance Education - Charters Towers

Our school provides quality education to children and others who for many reasons need access to an individualised program. People of all ages choose distance education for a variety of factors. Details on eligibility for studying by distance education are available on our enrolments page.

Our students are spread throughout the state, country and world.

Our school was the first Distance Education school to open in Queensland in 1987 and still leads in the use of technology to enable communication with our students and their tutors. We use traditional means of communication like mail and telephone as well as audio-teleconferencing, video, and the Internet to cross the barriers of distance and create the bonds of a school community.  We prepare people for the future.
