Why choose CCGS?

Reasons why you should choose Central Coast Grammar School
  • Consistently strong academic achievements

    Although we are a non-selective school, our students achieve consistently outstanding results in public examinations. A third of our Year 12 students usually achieve ATARs over 90. Most of our students continue their studies at university, with the majority gaining entry to their first choice university degree.

    At CCGS the focus is on the individual – how they learn, how they think and how we can support them each and every day to help them reach their full potential, both academically and socially.

  • Magnificent, spacious setting and first class facilities

    Our 17-hectare campus offers students a peaceful learning environment in which to explore, run, play, think and reflect. And our ongoing building program ensures that CCGS continues to provide wonderful resources that keep up with the very latest innovations in an ever-changing world.

  • We are a nondenominational school with a Christian ethos

    We are an inclusive school that encourages students to reflect on spiritual matters, ethical issues and human values, enabling them to gradually discover their own pathways in life.
