Bacchus Marsh Grammar’s principle purpose is to fulfil the community’s desire for an Independent education that is holistic in its approach, comprehensive, challenging and enriching.

Our Vision

Our Vision is to be a co-educational, Ecumenical day school that provides quality co-education for students from the outer western area of Melbourne. We celebrate diversity and place strong emphasis on the fundamental need to respect and value others and to continuously personally develop.

At Bacchus Marsh Grammar we know that we all have different strengths that need to be developed and weaknesses that can be enhanced.

We actively encourage students to be involved in a broad range of curricular and co-curricular activities, so they develop the “whole person”. We strongly emphasise “Education for Life” in all that we do to help prepare students for the world beyond school.

We foster a sense of openness, community responsibility, social conscience, tolerance and resilience.

Through our programs and pastoral care, we support and promote the principles and practice of Australian democracy. We are committed to supporting the elected government, the role of law and equal rights before the law, freedom of religion, freedom of speech and association and the values of openness and tolerance.
