Scotch College Vision
Statements of strategic intent
A SCOTCH EDUCATION
The factors which contribute to the making of a great school are rich and varied, so how do we ensure this one-off journey through the school years delivers opportunities, experiences and outcomes which resonate throughout a lifetime?
We need to consider the school we are, have been, and will become, and the roads along which we will travel.
WHAT, THEN, OF OUR SCHOOL?
Scotch College exists for educational purposes in connection with the Presbyterian Church of Victoria. In our Memorandum and Articles of Association is the requirement for the College to provide for its students,
‘ … an education of a humane, scientific and general nature consistent with the teachings of Christianity’ and ‘to encourage each student to achieve the highest standard of which he is capable in all his activities and the full development of the personality and sense of responsibility of each student and respect for others and capacity to work with them so as to promote the development of Christian ideals of citizenship, personal character and a spirit of reverence in the entire life and work of the College.’
BUILDING ON OUR ARTICLES OF ASSOCIATION OUR AIM IS:
‘ … to deliver an education which, secure in the traditions of our past and our Christian belief, opens boys’ minds to the rich diversity of the world in which they live and challenges them to question and explore everything they find, with integrity, humour and compassion. And to do this in an exciting, intimate environment which nurtures selfexpression and self-worth while promoting the uniqueness of each boy’s journey.’

As such, we stand on the shoulders of the achievements of our boys long after they have sung their last doxology and wended their way from Morrison Street, be it in professions, business, public service, service to others, or as a husband and father.
