What makes Scots College unique?

Scots College is a world-class independent Presbyterian day and boarding school for boys Years 1 - 13. As an IB World School, Scots offers a vibrant learning environment, encouraging excellence in every facet of education. At Scots we create global citizens - students who are equipped for life as balanced, compassionate, motivated and socially aware young people.

The Scots motto of 'Virtutem Paret Doctrina', translates as 'Let Education build all-round character' and emphasises our commitment to an holistic education and the development of well-rounded students of substance.

We strive to instil in each of our students a life-long commitment to learning and provide a nurturing environment in which each student can achieve their academic, spiritual, physical, cultural and social potential, for the greater good and in service to others. By providing our students with an array of opportunities inside and outside the classroom, we encourage them to not only explore and recognise the diversity of their talents and abilities but to develop essential leadership skills.

The College has recently announced changes it is making to better prepare students for their futures. This includes changing to a co-educational Senior School welcoming girls in years 11 to 13 from 2020. The Prep and Middle Schools (Years 1-10) will remain boys only as we have determined that stduents at this age are best served by a single sex environment.
