The College operates as two sub-schools, the Middle School (Years 7 to 9) and the Senior School (Years 10 to 12) which serve the different learning needs of adolescents. The College is committed to providing a holistic, rigorous and global curriculum that seeks to create independent learners.

According to the learning philosophy developed by all stakeholders at the College, students who graduate from Corpus Christi College have been provided with educational programs that reflect development in eight learning attributes, which together, form the Corpus Christi College Learner Profile.

The Learner Profile is the College mission statement translated into a set of learning outcomes applicable for the 21st century and our long-term vision of educating each child. The Learner Profile is a set of ideals that can inspire, motivate and focus the work of students, parents and teachers uniting them in a common purpose.  It describes a list of attributes that promote academic rigour and the establishing of a personal value system leading to a more moral and ethical, service oriented, peaceful and sustainable globalised approach. The College's pastoral care system maximises the opportunity for a graduating student to reflect these attributes.
