Prince Alfred College

Prince Alfred College is a leading independent day and boarding school for boys from ELC to Year 12, with a unique city location on the edge of Adelaide’s eastern parklands.

Our purpose is to develop young men of character and purpose who will make a positive contribution to the world around them. We are committed to providing a well-rounded and inclusive education for boys, with unique facilities, programs and approaches that are tailored to the specific needs of boys.

Our high-quality teaching staff and research-informed educational approach to achieve academic excellence are central to the unique experience at Prince Alfred College. We inspire a love of learning in our boys through a curriculum that blends rigorous academic focus with progressive thinking and critical exploration.

Supporting our boys in their academic pursuits is a broad range of co-curricular and outdoor education activities where each boy is encouraged to challenge themselves and discover their passions and purpose.

At Prince Alfred College we offer a range of academic pathways for our students, and we are proud to be the only single-sex boys’ school in South Australia to offer the IB Diploma.

The College has a long history of success in the IB, reflecting our commitment to making the Diploma Programme a key feature of a Prince Alfred College education. With 20 IB subjects to choose from, our classes are small and focussed, creating opportunities for students to develop strong relationships and engage in topics and discussions at a much deeper level than they might previously have experienced. Our specialist IB teachers are all individually trained by the IB in their respective subject areas, and they are extremely passionate about the IB programme.
