Mission and Values

Shellharbour Anglican College empowers students to live with purpose. To be bold and curious for their unique future.

We seek to provide an authentic learning journey guided by the Christian faith to prepare students to make a difference in their community and beyond. Our College nurtures and educates young people in accordance with the doctrines, tenets, beliefs and teachings of the Anglican Church Diocese Sydney.

“I really love the College. I think my children are so well looked after – not just academically, but in other ways too: spiritually, pastorally, socially.”

Our Mission

“In Christ alone we are building a learning community, dedicated to excellence and equipping to serve.”

Our Values

Our culture is underpinned by four key values that are central to who we are.


As a foundation for this life and eternal life. Our daily lives are shaped by the influence of faith. We commend and invite our community into faith in God, who makes himself known to us in and through Jesus Christ.


As a foundation for daily life. We seek wisdom and celebrate the gift of learning so we will live well in God’s world.


As a foundation for life in community. We devote ourselves to compassion because Christ gave freely to us.


As a foundation for relationships that matter for today and for the future. We cherish respect for every person, recognising the image of God in every individual.
