Uniquely located in the Snowy Mountains region in NSW, SMGS is a K-12 day and boarding school that offers students a diverse range of real world learning opportunities.

We enable this through a modern and innovative approach to education where every student is truly known, and our co-curricular programs are influenced by our unique surroundings.

Developed by our students, our core values are Courage, Authenticity, Respect and Empathy (C.A.R.E). Our motto, further underpinning our ethos, is Challenge Belong Explore, which is applied and embedded in all areas of learning, in and out of the classroom, and through student and staff personal and professional development.

Our mission is to work with families to develop well-rounded young people with active and creative minds, who have an understanding of and compassion for others, a passion for life-long learning and the courage and confidence to act on their beliefs … we inspire a love of life and learning.

We work together to achieve this by:

  • providing an unwavering focus on caring for the individual student
  • really knowing each child as a person, and knowing their story
  • providing growth pathways for students in a range of areas
  • actively supporting staff professional learning and personal support
  • high levels of student participation and personal success, leading to the building of self-worth and self-esteem
  • cultivating a school-wide culture of pride, encouragement and support
  • considering how we can give back to others and the local community.

We work together to achieve this through the development of programs that deliver:

  • relevant and successful educational outcomes
  • resilience and strong self-esteem
  • positive relationships between students and staff
  • a house system with vertical peer tutor groups
  • support and encouragement for individual difference
  • a learning experience that is connected to our natural environment.

Principal's Image
Welcome, and thank you for your interest in our dynamic school located in the pristine Snowy Mountains region of New South Wales. Our mission to work with families to develop well-rounded individuals stems from our belief in an holistic education that is underpinned by strong values and character-based education. Indeed, it does take a village to raise a child, and a strong sense of community is a core feature of Snowy Mountains Grammar School.
 
We have a responsibility to educate the hearts and minds of those most precious in our community, where they, in turn, will make meaningful contributions to the wider community now and into the future. Our moral imperative is to inspire the next generation of citizens and leaders to act ethically, to have empathy for others less fortunate, and to make a difference by achieving excellence in their chosen pathway in life.
 
The chosen career paths of so many of our alumni are inspiring to us all. Careers are a rapidly-evolving construct in society, with an appetite for disruption now firmly embedded in globally connected economies. Our attitude, as a provider of a modern education, is to remain open and agile, to innovate so as to improve the experience for students, and to prepare them for the world they are entering, not the one that we, as adults, experienced when we were at school.
 
Having a positive and determined attitude is fundamental to embracing lifelong learning, achieving personal success and experiencing fulfilment in life. Critically, this process begins at a very young age, and the sooner young individuals are immersed in positive, productive and caring environments, the better – this is our gift to our children. Our dedicated staff care deeply about our students and this makes all the difference.
 
Now is an exciting time to be part of Snowy Mountains Grammar School, with so many different opportunities being created in a wide range of learning areas and in co-curricular interests. A high-quality and well-rounded education is offered right here in the Snowy Mountains, where every student can find their own path in life – or create their own. Our learning environment, methodology, programs and physical spaces are constantly evolving to meet the needs of a variety of learner types and we do not believe in a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to learning.
 
Our website provides some insight into what we offer our students and we hope you find this appealing. If it does, there is nothing like visiting our campus and experiencing first-hand the ‘feel’ of who we are and what we might offer your children for their future.
As the Principal of Snowy Mountains Grammar School, I am delighted to invite you to find out more, with the possibility of joining us on our inspired journey of learning for all the young people in our care.
