St Peter's College is an Anglican boys' school located in Adelaide, South Australia. We are uncompromising in our commitment to being a world-class school at the forefront of boys' education. At Saints, we provide rigorous and extensive academic and co-curricular programs while always maintaining a focus on shaping the boy's and young men's character in our care.
Founded in 1847, we are honored to educate the minds, hearts, and spirits of our students for more than 170 years. We are proud of our academic success history, including three Nobel Laureates, ten Australian Premiers, 41 Rhodes Scholars, and a new generation of young leaders. Above all, we aspire to develop caring graduates that become contributors to our nation.
Education is a life journey, and St Peter's College aims to undertake this journey in partnership with parents. In our co-parenting role, we share responsibility for each student's successful navigation through childhood and adolescence. At Saints, both the school and parents are committed to and share the same values, and we work together to prepare our boys for a life fully engaged in all the possibilities and challenges that lie ahead.
Every school community's goal is to ensure that each child blossoms at school and flourishes throughout their lives. We are confident that Saints embraces the unique qualities of every individual so that everyone can thrive in their unique personal identity. At St Peter's College, every boy is encouraged and guided by talented, caring, and committed staff. Many of our teachers are leaders in their field, and they are dedicated to ensuring the best possible learning outcomes for our boys.
Our culture consists of our shared values, beliefs, and behaviours and is central to everything we do. Our culture guides our decisions and actions and has a potent effect on our school's wellbeing and achievements. This culture is underpinned by our vision, mission, impact, and values.
Our mission is to provide an exceptional education that brings out the very best in every boy. We do this within an intellectually and spiritually rich environment that nurtures international-mindedness, intercultural understanding, respect, and a commitment to social justice. We build great men who:
Believe safety, service, and integrity are fundamental parts of their lives.
Are active members of socially and culturally diverse communities.
Engage in political, ethical, and environmental challenges as good citizens.
