An International Baccalaureate World School
St Andrew's Cathedral School is an IB World School, accredited to deliver the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (Years 7-10) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, as well as the Higher School Certificate.
Our enrichment and learning team has a reputation for caring and nurturing students with learning needs, whether they are gifted and talented or having difficulty with a particular area of learning. Working closely with teachers, counsellors, students, parents and outside professionals to cater for the individual needs of students, the enrichment and learning team’s collaborative approach ensures communication and sharing of expertise as parents and professionals work together to design learning that has the right level of challenge for students.
St Andrew’s Cathedral School (SACS) is unique in many ways. Fully coeducational from Kindergarten to Year 12, we offer a different experience of independent schooling – dynamic, future-focused and outward-looking, situated in the centre of Sydney’s bustling CBD.
As one of Australia’s oldest schools, SACS is grounded in Christian values, but boasts an inclusive admission policy that accepts students from all faiths and belief systems.
Our central, convenient location (spanning two high-rise campuses) means we have a geographic enrolment base that spans across Sydney. We provide convenience for working city parents, with before and after school care. Our city location is complemented by Kirrikee, a vast Outdoor Education property in the Southern Highlands, as well as numerous Australia-wide and international opportunities to undertake community service, perform and compete in sport.
SACS offers Senior College students the International Baccalaureate Diploma and the Higher School Certificate (HSC), both of which are internationally recognised exit credentials. Classrooms have a focus on seamlessly integrating technology, and a rich variety of co-curricular opportunities that enhance student life. With more than 30 music ensembles, as well as drama, Theatresports, debating, dance and impressive sporting opportunities, SACS is a place where a student’s potential can be realised in many areas.
