Welcome to Penrith Anglican College.

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most influential decisions that you can make. The right school can ensure a positive and engaging start to their lives. As you look through our College’s website, you will find a snapshot of the many opportunities available at Penrith Anglican College, all of which are intended to help our students develop as well rounded individuals and prepare them for a life of purpose.

Education does not happen by chance and at Penrith Anglican College we have a clear focus on developing the whole student – focusing on their spiritual, academic and social development. We encourage students to live with purpose and achieve personal excellence through Christ. Students are able to develop across a range of areas – accepting responsibility, demonstrating commitment and personal initiative, becoming self-disciplined and showing sensitivity to the needs of others.

One of the challenges parents face when trying to decide where to send their children to school is ‘How do we choose?’ Education today has changed and parents should not use the learning experiences and methods they had as students as a measure for what they believe is best today. The global, digital and collaborative world of today is what students are already engaged in and need to be prepared for.

Penrith Anglican College prepares students for a bright future, from the enquiry-based, student centered learning in Pre-K classrooms, through to the various academic and co-curricular opportunities offered throughout the Primary and Senior years including our impressive Music and Performing Arts programs. In addition our Year 11 and 12 students have the opportunity to choose between the Higher School Certificate or the globally recognised International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.

With so many options available, the best question we can ask ourselves is, ‘What are our graduating students like?’.

We welcome you to visit Penrith Anglican College and see first-hand the fine young men and women attending the College.
