Every child has the ability to achieve excellence. They just need the right environment to help pave their way.
Glenelg Country School is more than an educational experience. We create a life-defining environment, helping to encourage and nurture our students’ natural interests from age 2 through grade 12.
Glenelg Country School instills a lifelong love for learning. We shepherd your child through every stage of development, from toddler and adolescent, to pre-teen and young adult.
Just like our mighty dragon mascot, Glenelg student-athletes are brave on and off the field. They routinely put the good of the team above individual pride and are valued for both their heart and skill.
Our students freely express their opinions, thoughts, and feelings through multiple forms of art.
The GCS community is the heart of our school. From students and parents to alumni and the community at large, Dragons remain connected to GCS.
Throughout our 60-year history, Glenelg Country School has been supported by a legacy of philanthropy. Explore the many ways to be an active part of the Glenelg Country School community.
The GCS community is the heart of our school.
