Welcome to Snowy Mountains Grammar School, a truly unique K-12, co-educational, day and boarding school located in the heart of the pristine alpine Snowy Mountains region.
Our mission is to work with families to develop well-rounded young people with active and creative minds, who have an understanding of and compassion for others, a passion for life-long learning and the courage and confidence to act on their beliefs. We are preparing our students for current and future global communities where emerging 21st century skills and thinking will be essential to thrive. It is no longer enough to pass on information to students; we must be teaching and inspiring students with what they can do with the information, equipped with advanced thinking and analytical skills.
Snowy Mountains Grammar School was established in 1996 and serves an important role in Australian education, providing an opportunity for students locally as well as inviting students from afar to join the local community as a weekly or full-time boarder. The opportunities for students at SMGS are extensive, offering a high quality formal education involving the traditional core subjects, with access to innovative elective learning programs, while experiencing some amazing opportunities in the outdoor environment, all within a smaller school setting where every child is well known.
It is a privilege to work alongside a team of dedicated and caring staff who authentically ‘go the extra mile’ for our students, whose strengths and talents are valued and unearthed throughout their journey at SMGS. Because we are a smaller school, we are able to offer a more personalised approach to ensure that all students are cared for and supported intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically and socially.
I encourage you to explore the pages within this website and to visit us on campus to gain an even better sense of who we are and whether we would ‘fit’ your vision of what you are searching for in a school.
I look forward to meeting with you.
Kelli Wilson, Acting Principal
