The Scots College is a distinctive Australian school that defends boys' honorable traditions, adventures, and learning. We exist to inspire boys to learn, lead, and serve as they strive for excellence together. Scots has been raising fine young men since 1893 from Sydney, New South Wales, and many different nations from around the world.
We are committed to developing a culture of high expectations that nourishes creative, confident, accomplished young men. As one of the top private boys' schools in Sydney, we acknowledge the importance of student engagement, challenge, and active learning opportunities. Learning experiences are increasingly personalized - shaped in response to our boys' development stages rather than their age or year level.
Our boys are encouraged to develop a 'growth mindset' understanding the diverse and dynamic nature of intelligence. They all need security, support, confidence in themselves, and belief in the power of their commitment to their learning. Information communication and video conferencing technologies enhance collaboration and the authenticity of learning experiences, provide flexibility, extend learning opportunities, and support targeted learning interventions.
Strong and positive values are essential to our College. We aim to build a culture of respect in our community towards God, others, self, and our environment by aligning our policies and practices with Christian principles. We are all measured by what sort of people we have become. At The Scots College, we strive to foster brave hearts and bold minds in every Scots boy through challenges and passion born of adventure. At Scots, we value the quest for excellence through adventure, curiosity, creativity, and growth.
The Scots College is committed to a culture of high expectations in which boys can become creative, confident, and accomplished learners. Our desired learning outcome is a young man who strives to maintain a firm grasp of every aspect of his humanity, working to develop his true masculinity and to strengthen himself in every way possible.
At The Scots College, we believe that young men discover true wisdom through reverence for God and faith in Jesus Christ. The ultimate aim of our education is to help students acquire a knowledge of the truth — of God, society, and the world — so that they are better prepared to serve in their families and the wider world, to God's glory and for the welfare of others.
