Wollondilly Anglican College is a Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 co-educational independent school owned and operated by The Anglican Schools Corporation.
Our focus is on delivering exceptional Learning, Care and Culture for our students.
We believe that our commitment to these essential elements of a high-quality education sets Wollondilly Anglican College apart.
Wollondilly Anglican College endeavours to provide a disciplined, caring, learning community where students and staff pursue excellence and lives are transformed for Christ’s glory.
The College will provide high-quality teaching in every classroom and in every lesson so that all students experience consistently high levels of academic growth.
Our aim is for every student to be cared for, feel connected to teachers and peers and experience the safe, loving community that Jesus calls us to provide.
We will support all staff and students, within a Christ-centred community, to achieve and contribute to the continued high expectations of the College
Beyond the essentials of Learning, Care & Culture, students at Wollondilly Anglican College have a vast range of sporting, creative and co-curricular opportunities that allow them to explore and develop their God-given talents and passions
The College is situated on 95 acres of pristine Australian bushland, with beautifully maintained gardens surrounding our state-of-the-art purpose-built facilities that enable our students to perform and learn at the best of their abilities.
God created mankind to rule the Earth and with the free will to accept or reject Him as a loving Father. We chose to reject God. Our perfect relationship with God was damaged beyond our repair (Rom 3:23). God is perfection. He is an incorruptible judge and cannot compromise so justice requires eternal separation from Him (Rom 6:23). It is God who provides the perfect life on our behalf through the death of perfect Jesus (1 Peter 3:18).
The gospel is the news that, when we were powerless, Christ pre-paid the price for us. It is good news for those who accept the exchange of Christ’s perfection and eternity with God for our imperfection and judgement. It is bad news for those who ignore Christ and seek to win God’s favour through the “purity” of their own good works.

For Christ’s Glory: The College seeks to reach the people of the Wollondilly Shire with the good news of Jesus Christ – John 17:5 And now Father, glorify me in your presence with the Glory I had with you before the World began.
Excellence: Three White Waratahs – A local rare Australian native flower: God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) has set a pattern of excellence in the beauty of creation – Luke 12:27 Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these.
Endurance: The Shield – A symbol of strength, protection and endurance amongst enemies, both seen and unseen – Ephesians 6:11 Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the Devil’s schemes.
Eternity: The Cross – A reminder of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice to secure our eternity with God and a reminder of His Commission to all Christians to spread the news that there is no other name under heaven by which we can be saved – Mark 8:34 If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
There are nearly 1,000 species of the Acacia plant that are native to Australia. The most famous example is the wattle. Many species have a subtle fragrance and bloom from late winter into the spring. The National colours of green and gold worn by Australian sporting teams are based on the green leaves and gold flowers of the acacia (Wattle). It is also the official Australian floral emblem.
The genus Grevillea are the most popular and widely grown Australian plants. They attract a variety of Australian birds due to their colourful displays of flowers. There are over 300 species of Grevillea, most of which are native to Australia. Flowers are very small and occur in clusters called an inflorescence.
Blue native Australian flowers are not common. The Sollya, or Western Australian Bluebell is an evergreen climbing plant. The flowers are shaped like little bells approximately one to two centimetres long. Sollyas grow to a height of two metres and are found predominantly in the south western part of Western Australia. The plant is named after the naturalist, RH Solly.
The most famous example of the genus Telopea is the Red Waratah. It is the floral symbol of New South Wales and is proudly worn by the NSW Rugby team. It is a spectacular garden plant which attracts a multitude of native birds. The flower is actually a conflorescence, made up of around 10 to 250 individual flowers. (The Wirrimbirra White Waratah is also a member of the genus Telopea)
Like the white Waratah, the Wollemi Pine is a very rare Australian plant. It was discovered in the Wollemi National Park at the bottom of a deep gorge in the early 1990s. Fossil comparisons indicate that the pine tree was around during the time of the dinosaurs. It is so rare that its location in the National Park is a closely guarded government secret.
Wollondilly Anglican College was conceived out of the need to provide Christian education in an environment that encourages excellence. Now with over 1,300 students, it has grown to be a College of choice for those in the Wollondilly Shire and surrounding districts who seek reinforcement of family values along with the development of life skills, self-discipline and broad educational options.
The College promotes academic excellence. We are blessed with an experienced staff of dedicated professionals, selected from many applicants.
