Pastoral Care and Wellbeing 2


Educating boys since 1869

Prince Alfred College offers an outstanding educational experience, which puts high-quality teaching and a commitment to academic excellence at the centre of a well-rounded education. We inspire in our boys a love of learning through a curriculum that blends traditional academic pursuits with progressive thinking and critical exploration. 

Outstanding teachers

We know the best school must have the best teachers. We proactively pursue world-class educators who bring inspiration, experience and subject matter expertise to our faculty. Many of our teachers have postgraduate qualifications, have published academic papers or have spoken at world-leading educational conferences. Above all, every teacher at Prince Alfred College cares deeply for our students and is committed to guiding their success.

An engaging curriculum

We offer an engaging curriculum and a broad range of subjects, taught by excellent teachers who encourage our boys to learn through discovery, exploration and creative problem-solving.

We are an IB World School. Our curriculum includes:

  • The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) in the Preparatory School
  • The Australian Curriculum in the Middle School
  • The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) or the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) in the Senior School

Through an engaging and inquiry-based curriculum, our boys enjoy an educational journey that inspires a lifetime love of learning.

Excellent academic results

We celebrate the achievements of our boys and support them to do their best in their academic pursuits. In the senior years, our boys have the choice of studying the SACE or the IB Diploma. They consistently achieve globally outstanding results through the IBDP as well as steadily strong results in the SACE, including many boys who achieve an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) above 95. With their Princes education, our boys open a world of possibilities for tertiary studies and career opportunities, with many taking up places at top universities in Australia and around the world.
