The region's best academically performing school is looking to extend its reach with an all new state-of-the-art distance education program.
Calrossy has asked for expressions of interest from students living in rural and remote locations looking to start year seven in 2020.
Principal David Smith said that the innovative distance education program offers an alternative for parents who are facing tough questions in regards to their children's education in the face of one the worst droughts in living history.
"eCalrossy would enable the benefits of a Calrossy education to be available to students at any location in Australia," he said.
"What sets this model of distance education apart from many of the others, is how it will be delivered."
Students will have a regular school hours timetable, and be part of a class streamed online in real time, offering the benefits of direct teacher and peer interaction, which is often missing from traditional models of distance education.
"Calrossy's current academic staff will deliver the online lessons with students receiving specialised tuition in each subject area, just as they would with face-to-face secondary teaching," Mr Smith said.
"The learning would then be supplemented by (three) compulsory residential sessions at the school throughout the year."
Annual fees for eCalrossy tuition will be $5000, as well as $420 in uniform costs, as well as $600 for a "Calrossy set-up Macbook and software."
The school is aiming to expand the program from year seven through to year nine, with a view to those students then enrolling as boarders for the senior years.
"We've only just put the model out and feedback is already positive," Mr Smith said. "Many parents and educators are saying it is a great idea for students who are not yet ready to board, or if it doesn't suit the family for them to leave home yet."
