The Scots College is more than just a school for boys.
Academic excellence is critically important, and our record demonstrates our success. But Scots aims for an even higher goal. We prepare boys to succeed in a world that is constantly being reinvented.
Our deep understanding into how boys grow and learn is captured in our Brave Hearts Bold Minds philosophy. This means we support every boy, at every stage of development, to become confident, well-grounded young man of integrity. They will become the fine young men of the next generation who will, in their turn, reinvent their world. This is why academic success alone does not prepare boys for the future. A strong sense of identity, values, and character is vital.
The College has intentionally chosen a path where active learning works with academic excellence. Our local, national and international programs, inspire our boys to become principled, compassionate and engaged citizens of their College, their community and their world.
Our Christian mission and values frame our quest to nurture wise young men, with a worldview that encompasses knowledge of the past, perceptive insight into the present and innovative thinking about our global future together.
This is The Scots Advantage.
Scots to the fore!

Boarders have been a vital part of the Scots community for over a century.
Boarding at Scots, available from Year 5 onwards, offers a high quality education in a safe and nurturing environment, where your son is supported to reach his full potential. As a boarder, your son will stay at one of our five Boarding Houses where he will be provided with strong pastoral care and individual attention, while experiencing the joys of being a part of his House 'family'.

Pastoral Care features prominently in all aspects of College life and in the day-to-day experiences of each individual in our community. The Scots College has a strong pastoral care ethos and is committed to looking after the needs of boys and nurturing their growth and development within a safe and caring environment. Pastoral care and student welfare programs are whole-school in nature. The health, well-being and safety of students is measured and managed through a carefully planned T-12 pastoral care system and is embedded within the curriculum, the House system, the Tutor program, staff professional development and other key policies that guide procedures throughout the College.
