Established in 1929, Canberra Grammar School is a co-educational 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.
At Canberra Grammar School, we aspire for our students to be intelligent, innovative and international; to be confident, creative and compassionate young leaders of the future; to be ready for the world.
The 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. CGS is also the only boarding school for boys in the ACT (with girls boarding being available for 2019 onwards), and it is an International Baccalaureate World School and is the only school in the ACT to offer the NSW Higher School Certificate.
In a world shaped by globalisation, environmental change and technological advancement, our students will live and study and work in Australia and abroad in ways that we can scarcely imagine. They will collaborate with colleagues across cultures and disciplines to solve problems using tools that we have yet to invent. To flourish, they must have the critical capacity to analyse complex information, the ability to communicate in multiple languages, the adaptive creativity to find solutions, and the integrity to serve others always before self. Our strategic plans and our academic, pastoral and co-curricular education must support that.
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.
In October 2015, Canberra Grammar School announced that it would be transitioning to a fully co-educational school. In 2018, CGS was pleased to announce that boys and girls would be educated together across all years from Pre-School to Year 12, and in March 2018 the School announced it would be accepting girls and boys into boarding from 2019 onwards.
