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 the plan to also extend this to girls in the future), 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, CGS announced that it would transition towards being fully co-education from Pre-School to Year 12, and as of 2018 we will have boys and girls together in all year groups. You can read more about our co-education transition in our publication ‘Boys and Girls Together for the Future‘.
