Founded in 1985, the Core Purpose of the Anglican Schools Commission (Inc.) is to establish and support low fee Anglican systemic schools which provide a high quality, inclusive, caring Christian Education.
Growing from modest beginnings with the opening of St Mark's Anglican Community School in 1986 in the northern beaches suburb of Hillarys, today approximately 10,200 students attend ten ASC schools on twelve campuses throughout Perth, as well as Mandurah, Busselton and Esperance, our tenth school is Cathedral College in Wangaratta, Victoria. These young people, aged from four to eighteen years old, are taught and cared for by over 1000 staff.
ASC schools are co-educational communities of excellence and educational centres of caring. Most offer a comprehensive Kindergarten to Year 12 education. They deliver excellence in education, stressing high achievement in traditional academic subjects, balanced by comprehensive co-curricular and vocational programs. These are underpinned by core Christian values and teaching in the time-honoured Anglican tradition. Pastoral care and social justice are central to each school’s outworking of the Christian faith within its community.
The ASC provides policy direction and support in the areas of finance and budgeting, industrial relations and capital development. We also provide the curriculum framework and professional development for Christian Religious Studies, assisting teachers to develop meaningful and engaging programs for students.
We work closely with local communities, parish churches, government, property developers and the wider corporate sector to plan new schools in growth areas throughout Western Australia.
Our website will enable you to learn more of the work of the Anglican Schools Commission, access key policies and documents, link to each of our schools and other Anglican entities and contact us for further information.
