Welcome to Wollondilly

Wollondilly Anglican College was conceived out of the need to provide Christian education in an environment which encourages excellence. Now with over 900 students, it has grown to be a College of choice for those in the Wollondilly Shire and surrounding districts who seek a reinforcement of family values along with the development of life skills, self discipline and broad educational options.

The College promotes academic excellence. There is a differentiated curriculum to provide extension opportunities and the EDGE Academy caters for acceleration by subject or by grade. We are blessed with an experienced staff of dedicated professionals, selected from many applicants. 

The College provides for the education of students from Pre-Kindergarten (4 year olds) to Year 12 and offers specialist facilities to cater for all core subjects along with a variety of academic electives. Modern, technology focused, comfortable, air-conditioned learning facilities accommodate all classes without the use of any portable or demountable buildings. 

Controversy surrounding the values that schools teach is never far from the media spotlight. It has even been suggested that some schools are value-neutral. I would challenge this assertion. All schools pass on values to students. Parents do not choose schools on the basis of a presence or absence of values, but rather on the basis of the quality of values that are in evidence. Wollondilly Anglican College espouses the virtues of traditional Australian Christian values. These include freedom for students to shine, the development of God-given talents and a family environment exemplified by quality pastoral care and sense of community.

The spectacular, award-winning grounds and modern, stylish uniforms, are testament to a pride in belonging which is shared by staff, students and parents alike. This is enhanced by an emphasis on a safe environment, where students have a right to personal security and are encouraged to share responsibility for the safety of others.

We encourage the consideration of Excellence, Endurance and Eternity, for Christ’s glory.
