Vision & Values


The Australian Performing Arts Grammar School brings together young people of creative ability and academic commitment. The School offers an enriched curriculum which fosters independence, self-esteem, and a sense of commitment to the wider community. Our philosophy revolves around the values of respect, commitment and connection, and our students are encouraged to explore ideas and to expand their skills within a framework of trust and encouragement. APGS offers an arts rich and a rigorous academic education in an international environment that fosters and provides students with the opportunity to flourish intellectually, creatively, and spiritually.



At APGS we believe that there is a creative capacity in all children that should be fostered and encouraged. APGS provides the timetable and dedicated staff to help young artists to flourish. APGS provides young artists with the instruction, encouragement and time that they need to develop their passion and skills. Older students are taught a discipline and commitment that enable their talent to be developed. At APGS we believe that talent is best nurtured when those who foster the student are themselves worthy of emulation.

APGS organizes visiting artists and performers to complement their exemplary permanent staff to enrich the program with master classes and allow students to perform and exhibit their work in company with those already contributing to Australian and international performing arts practice.
