Independent Thought. Shared Purpose.
ONCE A DRAGON
Independence at Glenelg Country School is demonstrated through the expression of individual identities and perspectives, the strength to discover and uphold individual convictions, and the freedom to have agency over individual choices. Independence here is balanced with an abiding appreciation for the interdependence that makes a community thrive and the responsibility we all have to care for each other.

ALWAYS A DRAGON
Independent thought at GCS applies to the School itself and how it enlivens a thoughtful, well-rounded curriculum. And it applies to the students, who are learning to make their own way in a complex world to become exceptional alumni and ambassadors.
