Diversity is in our DNA
Proudly Anglican, All Saints’ College is non-selective - diversity is in our DNA - diversity of our students’ gender, abilities, culture, faith, interests and pathways. Our College strives to reflect the diversity of the wider community in which our students will eventually be collaborating, creating and problem-solving and, as a result, we are proud of our ‘grounded’ graduates who, rather than a sense of entitlement, demonstrate in myriad ways their sense of responsibility to their communities.
To this end, and in collaboration with a network of partners, the College curates a rich, ‘personalisable’ learning environment in which students develop a deep, authentic, empathetic and ethical perspective. This sees our young people going beyond the traditional boundaries of education, leading in ‘real-world’ environments, co-authoring a future that values creative collaboration and connections.
Our ‘ATAR +’ approach recognises - while the vast majority of ASC students strive to achieve the highest possible ATAR and are frequently amongst the top-performing students in the nation - the College’s role in ‘brokering’ for students a range of pathways, whether General, Enterprise or Hybrid.
In nurturing students’ problem-solving and problem-posing mindsets that value innovation and fresh ways of thinking, the College is supported by a strong focus on Design Thinking as well as by entities such as Propeller Industries (our Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship), Runway, our student-run pop-up shop which features their goods and services, and Catalyst, our Centre for Service and Social Enterprise.
Further enriching our young people’s toolkit of future-focused skills is The Agency, an employment agency run specifically for ASC students. Providing highly-valued experience and learning opportunities, The Agency enables our students to use their skills and passions for the benefit of our community, whether that be by taking on a role as a Graphic Designer, Commissioned Artist, Tech Coach, or Book Reviewer – the possibilities are endless.
This approach to education prioritises students’ agency and passion, empowering our young people to be architects of their own learning while striving to build mastery in their chosen pursuits.
Underpinning this approach is Djoowak: The Beyond Boundaries Institute (BBI). Launched in 2018, BBI comprises a team of College staff who, along with our students, work with leaders from business, industry and community partners in ensuring the relevance and currency of an All Saints’ education.
