Coomera Anglican College bases its ethos on the twin foundations of the Anglican Church of Australia and 'imagine Listen Respect' (iLR) which is its values framework. These inform and drive all aspects of the College including its Teaching and Learning Framework (including the Habits of Mind system) and the self-driven behaviour management system called the Raise Responsibility system.
A major feature of the College is its approach to the use of technology. This is aimed at providing a consistent, regulated and educationally focussed incorporation of technology throughout the phases of primary and secondary education. In the Junior and Senior Secondary Schools this takes the form of a 1 to 1 laptop scheme called eMind. In the Primary School the focus is on providing a high availability of ICTs with a significant use of interactive whiteboard technologies.

All members of the same family are placed in the same house. Each house is named after a person who had a part in the foundation of the school.
