Values and vision

Scotch College Adelaide wants all students to enjoy their time in education and go on to lead fulfilling, happy and successful lives.  The all-through school nurtures pupils as risk takers and encourages them to reach their full potential and strive across all areas of the curriculum and follows the motto: "To develop engaged and connected learners who possess the knowledge, commitment and passion to enhance their own and others' lives." Pupils are encouraged to give back to the community as positive global citizens and to care and show respect and kindness towards others, regardless of their differences. Scotch College Adelaide offers extensive pastoral care to ensure that all students feel cared for during their time learning and offers various wellbeing programmes along with talks on topical issues such as tackling the stigmas of mental health. Parents are encouraged to play an active role in their children’s education to ensure that all pupils have a strong support network both in class and during their home life.
