Canberra Grammar School has long had an excellent reputation for academic success. As the most established independent boys’ school in the national capital it aims to provide a rich and varied curriculum for its students with an educational experience that prepares young men 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, creativity to find solutions and the confidence to lead. Given this mandate, the curriculum at Canberra Grammar School is developed around building capacity in students to be Asia ready, internationally minded and technologically adept. Canberra Grammar School offers a contemporary education that values the Arts and believes that young men should cultivate a sense of responsibility to act judiciously and be of service of others.
There is an unapologetic focus on excellence, while also recognising that learning, at all levels of ability, should be celebrated, valued and supported. The School provides a responsive environment to all students, including those needing additional assistance and those with exceptional abilities. Given that around 90% of students choose to attend university, the curriculum offering is designed to prepare students for an academic future.
