Canberra Grammar School has long had an excellent reputation for academic success. The HSC offers students to study a rich and varied curriculum with an educational experience that prepares young adults to be intelligent, innovative and international in their outlook.
In an era that will be dominated by such challenges as rapid globalisation, environmental change and extraordinary technological advancement, our students must develop a critical capacity to analyse complex problems, a creativity to find solutions and have the confidence to lead, and the HSC prepares students to be ready for the world.
