Why choose Radford?

Radford College is a contemporary Anglican co-educational day school which recognises that each student has unique potential. We help them fulfil their potential by offering a world-class education and opportunities to learn beyond the traditional classroom through co-curricular and community service programs.

We employ a non-selective enrolments process and Radford consistently ranks highly in the ACT academic rankings. We believe this is because of our innovative teaching and our fundamental understanding that students are most successful when they are engaged.

Radford is committed to progressive and positive teaching methods and our students are encouraged to be responsible, motivated and engaged in their schooling.

Our Purpose

Radford College is a generous-spirited learning community that embodies the beliefs and values of the Christian faith in the Anglican tradition. We develop young people to live truthfully, practise compassion and seek wisdom in order to serve the common good.

Our Vocation

It is our vocation to graduate students who find themselves through friendship and service with others, who love the world enough to act beyond self-interest, young people who are:

awake to God’s presence and purposes;
confident in learning, skilled in clear thinking and intellectual rigour;
humble in their gifts, generous in spirit and compassionate in action;
courageous for justice, seekers of the common good;
respectful and trustworthy – always and everywhere;
creative and bold to imagine new possibilities, at peace with themselves;
authors of lives that transcend the material, rich in meaning and filled with hope.
