A Christian school with an Anglican foundation, inclusive of all, caring and positive. We offer high-quality, affordable education to the HSC, emphasizing care of students and their families, academic excellence, participation in a range of activities, links with the community, innovative pathways in education, and growth in Christian and civic values.
The School is a co-educational Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 School in Grafton, Northern NSW, next to the majestic Clarence River and attracts students from the many communities that exist in the Clarence Valley. The School has many strengths, but at the forefront are the School’s safe and caring environment and the dedicated and professional staff that build strong relationships with the students. While CVAS has a strong focus on academic outcomes, holistic education is encouraged that captures the strengths of the individual. Happy learners are better learners and the goal is that every student wants to come to school to be a part of the School’s learning community and they graduate with a chosen pathway beyond school. This may be a university, a trade, a traineeship, or employment. Our pastoral care of students is based on Christian values in the Anglican tradition, and the School values of Being a part of a Christian Community, Living in a Nurturing Community where each student prepares for the challenges of adult life, and Doing your best in a Learning Community.
Clarence Valley Anglican School seeks to provide children with the opportunity to achieve their full potential through participation in a broad range of learning experiences. The School encourages and develops a spirit of partnerships between parents, students, and staff in a creative learning environment. The School promotes a caring community where Christian values are respected and practiced.
