The Monaro Community Merit Scholarship

Principal's Welcome


Snowy Mountains Grammar School offers a first class grammar school education from K-12 in a small-school environment where every student is known, encouraged and accepted in a safe and caring community. Combining high quality learning in the classroom with amazing opportunities for young people to explore one of Australia’s most spectacular and unique settings through a wide range of co-curricular offerings in Outdoor Activities and in the creative and performing Arts, are just a couple of aspects of our wonderful school .

The choice of school is a crucial decision and it is important to realise that the real measure of a good school can be found within the people who belong to the school, not in the bricks and mortar. At SMGS we have dedicated, caring, professional, knowledgeable and high quality staff who ensure all students are valued, while at the same time challenge all to strive for their personal best and beyond, whatever that may be.

Students at SMGS not only work hard and achieve highly, but are well-known for their respect, compassion, acceptance and support for their peers of all ages. I invite you to walk around the campus and see this special culture being lived and embraced by our exceptional students. These are the real values that set good schools apart.

The qualities of CHALLENGE BELONG EXPLORE reflect the values at SMGS, underpinned by a Christian foundation. SMGS offers far more than high academic outcomes and wide ranging opportunities for students, it encourages all students to be well-rounded valuable citizens within the community.

I invite you to look through our website as you consider Snowy Mountains Grammar School as the ‘right choice’ for you, whether it be as a Day or Boarding student.
