We educate 1 -18 year-old boys every year including overseas students and boarders. In everything we do we aim to inspire excellence.
Helping boys become men
• With nearly 140 years of experience in teaching boys we understand what makes them tick. • Knowing boys means we teach them the way boys learn best. • We set high expectations – and the boys respond with high achievement. • We value every boy’s individuality – and they learn to value each other. • We see their leadership potential – and they rise to become leaders. • We are committed to helping all our boys develop into men who have confidence integrity and compassion. • We see their moral values as being as important as their grades.
Christian principles and commitment to academic development and service and care for others is the essence of a boy's education at Prince Alfred College. Our outstanding stimulating and creative environment ignites a passion for learning and the imagination of boys nurtures creativity and aids achievement. The school environment nourishes creativity through: • offering International Baccalaureate programs for primary middle and senior students: o Primary Years Programme (PYP) for students in Reception to Year 6o Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students in Years 7 to 10o International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBD) and SACE for students in Years 11 and 12• emphasising the development of critical and creative thinking skills• encouraging discovery and exploration in research problem-solving and open-ended learning• balancing academic formation with strong programs in outdoor education sport music chess drama art debating and other co-curricular activities• supporting students in a strong system of pastoral care based on sound Christian moral and ethical values with an emphasis on the social development of young men.
• We view students as individuals and take them on an educational journey. • Our goal is to realise the potential in every boy and help him become a compassionate well rounded man of integrity. • We succeed when boys discover their talent and use it for the good of others. • We teach our students to question what lies ahead of them and to think creatively.
