PLC Armidale is a Pre-K to Year 12 girls' day and boarding school of the Presbyterian Church of Australia in NSW. We welcome girls to grow within and contribute to the culture of a flourishing 21st Century school for girls locally, regionally and internationally. The 131 year-old College provides a traditional yet innovative education based on Christian values that inform our approach to learning and relationships within the College. Our experienced staff appreciate and understand the needs of girls and programs are specifically designed to cater for their needs, particularly evident in the College's comprehensive pastoral care and chaplaincy programs.
The College has an enviable reputation for strong academic achievement across a broad and academically rigorous subject offering, having been consistently ranked among the top performing schools in NSW, in both the HSC and NAPLAN examinations. Alongside the academic program is the College's exceptional music program, a diverse and competitive sports offering (IGSSA member), challenging leadership (Duke of Edinburgh) program, extensive community service activities, and international service learning opportunities.
As a small, regional all-girls' school, PLC Armidale offers a more personal, bespoke educational and boarding experience, where our size of over 300 girls, is in fact our greatest strength. Our all-girls' context and Christian environment facilities a strong culture of engagement, particularly in the areas of leadership, sport, and the Sciences and encourages girls to challenge themselves and contribute to their community. Flexible boarding options are offered including full-time, weekly and casual, as well as an extended day program, that also operates through the Boarding House. The College also provides a dedicated Year 12 Study Centre. PLC Armidale is strengthened by its alliance with PLC Sydney (where both are governed by a combined College Council) and the partnerships with community organisations within our region. PLC Armidale also offers a unique, residential intensive English Language program, called PLC Pathways, which operates in parallel to the mainstream curriculum.
To gain a genuine appreciation of the College's inspirational culture of leaning and flourishing environment, contact our Enrolments Manager, Sally McCook, for a tour or experience day / night on a day that suits your family. We look forward to welcoming you!
