Well-known and safe
We are strongly committed to providing a safe and supportive learning environment. From the first day of highschool, each Year 7 student is closely supported and kept accountable by a member of our welfare team. Students meet in small groups three times a week, to ensure each of them is known and valued, organised and meeting the academic requirements of the College. We help our students develop positive, respectful relationships and foster a culture where each child can feel valued and welcome. Our research-backed wellbeing programs teach and model highly practical strategies that help students navigate and thrive during their teenage years.
Learning is our focus
When students are well-known, safe and supported, quality learning takes place. At ACC Singleton, we have a clear plan for your child’s learning success. Our plan is backed by research that outlines how students learn and what sort of teaching gets results. During a tour of our Senior School classrooms you will see consistency of teaching strategies, well managed lessons and highly engaged students.
Our communication with parents is both timely and transparent. We let parents know about student learning success and if there are any blocks to learning. This means you are well-informed about your child’s progress and performance.

Great teachers always getting better
Our school leadership is dedicated to employing teachers who enjoy being with children and who delight in helping students thrive in all aspects of their lives. We expect our teachers to deliver high-quality lessons that engage students and drive learning. Our teachers receive specific and direct feedback that promotes immediate and ongoing teacher improvement.
We are passionate about high-impact teaching that gets results.
Authentic, supportive relationships
Healthy, positive and authentic relationships are at the heart of the way we work. As such, we have high expectations of our students. We expect them to relate positively with others. We help each student develop strong, respectful relationships with their teachers and peers by modelling healthy communication, setting clear boundaries, and teaching positive attitude and behaviours.
