About our School

Our co-educational, independent school for Years 1 to 13 is dedicated to providing an academically focused education, instilling a passion for learning and encouraging students to embrace global opportunities.

Exceptional learning

We offer a supportive, caring environment that ensures each student’s needs are met, so they are well equipped to reach their full potential. ACG Parnell College teachers are passionate about delivering education in a way that brings out the best, and extends the unique abilities of each student.

Students who feel supported, accepted and valued are likely to thrive. Our safe, inspiring learning environments are specially designed to support this, while our pastoral care system ensures we meet the personal needs of each student.

It is our goal to engage students through collaborative learning, specialised teaching, and personalised tutoring to extend, enrich and accelerate our students.

Students are encouraged to be involved in arts, sports and culture, which supports their intellectual, social, cultural and physical development. Achievements and participation outside of the classroom contribute to creating well-rounded global citizens.

  • Our Vision & Values

    In our stimulating, positive learning environments, our teachers steer students towards personal fulfilment and success by encouraging curiosity and questioning.

    As students progress through each year, our teachers ensure they’re supported to take on the appropriate level of responsibility and autonomy. This means younger students are given the support they need to grow and accelerate, and our senior students are equipped with skills for a bright future.
