About the Anglican Schools Commission

founded in 1985, the core purpose of the Anglican Schools Commission (Inc.) is to establish and support Anglican Systemic Schools which are co-educational communities of excellence and educational centres of caring.

Growing from modest beginnings with the opening of St Mark’s Anglican Community School in 1986 in Perth’s northern beaches suburb of Hillarys, there are now approximately 14,000 students attending fourteen ASC schools in Western Australia, New South Wales and Victoria.


Our International Programs are co-ordinated through the Anglican Schools Commission International. With a staff of 1500, we are one of the larger non-government schooling systems in Australia. We are justifiably very proud of what we have achieved in 30 years.


ASC schools are distinctly Christian communities that demonstrate care for each other and treat all people with dignity and respect.


From the Anglican Schools Commission


The Anglican Schools Commission recognises the benefits that international students bring to our schools. Besides adding to cultural diversity and language skill development in our schools, they broaden our global perspective to learning. Our students’ journey is enriched as young women and men from various countries study side-by-side in the classroom, compete on the sporting field and perform on the stage or in the orchestra pit.

The Anglican Schools Commission International’s programs value each student as an individual with unique needs, gifts and aspirations. Our academic programs along with co-curricular activities and Student Welfare Services combine to offer a holistic educational experience which cares for all aspects of a student’s well-being. We aim to ensure a smooth transition into life in Australia for every student, with each milestone achieved marking a student’s growth and maturity along their pathway to realising their goals.

We are delighted with the success and expansion of our international programs and look forward to welcoming more overseas students to ASC Schools.

The Reverend Peter Laurence OAM
