What makes St Andrew's College unique?

Welcome to St Andrew’s College, a fully independent, co-educational school for pre-school to Year 13 day and boarding students. At St Andrew’s, proud Scottish Presbyterian traditions and values, academic rigour, and exceptional sporting, cultural and leadership opportunities combine for an education that is truly world class and a life experience that is unforgettable.

Our vision is that St Andrew’s students will be active participants in a dynamic community of learners and will be inspired to become valued citizens and enthusiastic learners for life.

Over the last decade we have delivered an ambitious $80m development plan at the College including the construction of new upmarket Boarding Houses, the state-of-the-art Gym 2, and the spectacular Centennial Chapel at the heart of our campus. Brand new Pre-school and Junior School facilities will open in 2018.

In 2017 St Andrew’s marked its Centenary, with the special spirit and culture of the College highly evident as over 3,000 people returned to participate in the celebrations.

We have been proudly co-educational since 1991 and are firm believers in the benefits of a co-educational environment. Click here to find out what these are.

As St Andrew’s moves into its second century in an era of unprecedented exponential change, we are incorporating the latest research into innovative and contextual learning to ensure we continue to provide the best possible educational environment where young people can flourish.

There is high demand for places at St Andrew’s College and we welcome families to visit and book a guided tour to experience the StAC difference.
