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.
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 co-educational boarding school in the ACT, and it is an International Baccalaureate World School and is the only school in the ACT to offer the NSW Higher School Certificate.
Canberra Grammar School has always been a proud boarding school, acknowledging the responsibility and commitment it takes to nurture students who are entrusted to our care. We offer traditional term boarding for regional and international students, as well as flexible boarding where students stay on campus from Monday through Thursday nights, then join their families for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Casual boarding as needed is also available for current students depending on availability.
Our boarders have 24 hour, seven day a week support from an incredible team of dedicated and caring professionals, led by the Head of Boarding. The team also includes live in and visiting tutors, a registered nurse and visiting doctor. Academic tutors offer that little bit extra to support our commitment to academic excellence while our Housemother is the mum away from home who meets the everyday needs of boarders. CGS Boarding also offers a range of dedicated pastoral care staff, including counsellors and psychologists who are on-staff.
