Welcome to St Mark?s Anglican Community School
St Mark?s Anglican Community School has grown from its humble beginnings in 1986 to be a thriving educational community of 1580 students from Kindergarten to Year 12.
A commitment to developing the ?whole person? is at the core of a St Mark?s education through a diverse and enriching set of learning experiences including distinctive programs in the arts, sport, outdoor education and service to the community. The School’s hope is that St Mark?s students will be typified by their compassion, their resilience, their pursuit of excellence, and their sense of community and global responsibility.
The academic ethos of the School is paramount, with increasing focus on catering for high achievers and gifted and talented students. Although the School is quietly understated in promoting itself, places for enrolment at St Mark?s are highly sought and often difficult to secure.
The Christian values of the School are central to all of this, and the two great commandments to love God and to love one?s neighbour as oneself underpin the strong relationships between students, parents and staff. This ethos permeates the fabric of the St Mark?s community, creating a safe and happy place in which to work and learn.
A School of the Anglican Schools Commission
St Mark?s Anglican Community School one of fourteen schools in the Anglican Schools Commission. As centres of excellence in teaching and learning, pastoral care, worship, and service, the schools of the Anglican Schools Commission are distinctively Christian communities, fulfilling the Gospel imperative to teach the faith and nurture the young.
As a way of encouraging excellence in education, and rewarding high achievement, each year the School Council offers a limited number of scholarships for students entering Year 7.
Scholarships are awarded for the student’s Secondary School career at St Mark’s Anglican Community School, subject to satisfactory progress.
Further information, including details about scholarship examinations, the value of the scholarships, selection criteria and how to register, can be found on the School?s website or by emailing email@example.com.
