Hornsby Ku-Ring-Gai Community College Inc (HKCC)
Believes in community
Since 1925, HKCC has been an active part of the constantly evolving local community. It was founded on catering for the needs of individuals – many deprived coming back from military service – desiring to improve education to qualify for better employment opportunities.
Our students are mainly referred by employment and support agencies based in Hornsby and Ku-ring-gai, specialising in disability services, mental health and victims of domestic violence. The Team at HKCC is often graced with success stories from students achieving employment and/or independence within the community.
We believe in both the intellectual and personal growth of learners. We work closely with nearby reputable organisations for the purpose of launching careers through skills and building confidence.
