EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION
Canberra Grammar School is an Independent Anglican School offering outstanding academic education, co-curricular opportunities and pastoral care to day and boarding students of all backgrounds and faiths within a community guided by Christian values.
The School is in the process of becoming fully co-educational. It educates boys from Pre-School to Year 12 and is currently extending its offering to girls, who have been educated in the Primary School since 1975 and who will now be represented across the range of School life by 2020.
Canberra Grammar School respects and nurtures all students as individuals, seeking to inspire, support and celebrate the efforts of all in realising their intellectual, spiritual, cultural, social and physical aspirations.
Building on the professional expertise of its staff, the commitment of its community and the resources of the nation?s capital, Canberra Grammar School aims to be the most dynamic and distinctive centre of learning in Australia.

The Christian foundation of Canberra Grammar School is central to its purpose and daily life. Pastoral Care is one of the distinctive features of the School, extending across all facets of education and involving all teaching staff. Every member of staff at Canberra Grammar School understands themselves to be part of a team devoted to ensuring the academic, physical, emotional and spiritual growth of each child. Pastoral Care embraces all facets of the education of the child.
Canberra Grammar School has always been a proud boarding school, acknowledging the responsibility and commitment it takes to nurture students who are entrusted to our care.
We offer traditional term boarding for regional and international students, as well as flexible boarding where students stay on campus from Monday through Thursday nights, then join their families for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Casual boarding as needed is also available for current students depending on availability.
Two fully refurbished houses accommodate approximately eighty students from Years 7 to 12 with individual rooms for those in Years 9 to 12. Younger students benefit from having close companionship and support during the early years of boarding: older students value the independence and privacy of their own space.
Canberra Grammar School is an Independent Anglican school that welcomes students of all backgrounds and faiths.
The School?s culture, aspirations and principles are founded in Christian values and traditions. We strive to teach and nurture faith in God, and to respond to human need with loving service. It is our aim to educate young leaders of the future who are distinguished by compassion grounded in faith; to give more than is received, to serve, and to love with God?s guidance and care.
