From our Principal
“Fraser Coast Anglican College is well known for consistently strong academic results and adherence to high standards inside and outside of the learning environment. Academic performance can open many doors for our students, but at FCAC we understand that there are many other factors required to make a student successful in modern society. FCAC’s focus is on the holistic development of each of our students and this approach is evident in our modern learning programs as well as the range of engaging extra-curricular activities we offer students to assist with the development of their character and areas of personal strength.
We believe in investing in our students so they become confident and creative individuals who are active in our community as well as developing them as successful learners who can apply their skills to whatever challenges are placed before them. Our community is one of inclusion relying heavily on the power of positive relationships between students, parents and staff for the best outcomes for FCAC students.”

The history of the College has its roots in the parishes of Maryborough and Hervey Bay. It was a vision that began back in November 1991 and began to be formed into a reality through 1992 with parishioners from Maryborough and Hervey Bay. That vision was to see the Anglican Church establish a school in the Fraser Coast district, to contribute to the education and development of young lives in the local communities, in an environment founded and shaped by the Christian faith.
The College commenced operations in a business office at 67 Main Street, Pialba on 1 July 1994. Our Foundation Principal was Mr Grahame Ginn (1994-2004). Situated on 64 acres of scenic bushland, the College opened its doors to 138 students from Year 1 to 8 on 31 January 1995, and was officially Blessed, Dedicated and Opened on Saturday 1 April 1995 at a ceremony in the College grounds, officiated at by the Most Reverend Peter Hollingworth, Archbishop of the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane.
The Fraser Chapel is the spiritual heart of our College. It was moved from Tewantin where it was formerly St Mary’s the Virgin Anglican Church. It served as a classroom for our foundation students in 1995 and is now utilised by the wider College and Hervey Bay community. Most students will visit the Chapel on their first day and it is the last place our graduates gather before their final assembly.

Our Vision & Values
Empowering our community for the building of a better world.
‘Together, We Rise’
At the root of life and learning is relationships. We cherish relationships with students, staff, families, the wider community, the natural world and God.
• Humility, an appreciation that common humanity is God-given
• loving kindness;
• building relationships, honouring the inherent dignity of others;
• serving the best interests of each other;
• Justice, a hunger for fair and just sharing.
‘As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another.’ (1 Peter 4:10-11)
‘Light the Way’
The Christian story is the story of the gift of light to heal and transform. Empowerment is the activity of receiving light, allowing it to grow within, and bringing that light to others. It means taking responsibility for making positive choices. This value understands the smallest flame can dispel darkness and be shared without diminishing, and that if some are less, we all are less.
• receptivity, gracious openness to receive;
• self-regulation, self-discipline, self-control, self-awareness, self- leadership;
• commitment to learning, reflection, growth;
• leadership as the sharing of power
‘Arise, shine, for your light has come.’ (Isaiah 60:1)
We value the strength of heart necessary for a person to stand as they are, where they are, for a good that is greater than they are.
• resilience, fortitude and persistence in the face of
• moral integrity to stand for what is true and virtuous;
• growing out of your comfort zone;
• the ability to author how we respond to what happens to us;
• copying Christ as example and source of courage.
‘Stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong’ (1 Corinthians 16:13)
‘Aim High, Go Far’
Excellence is more about attitude than outcomes. It’s not about being ‘the’ best, it’s about being ‘your’ best. The context is community, failure is normal, forgiveness a gift and faith a source of inspiration. There is a shared delighting from God and those around us when each lives out their full and unique giftedness.
• giving and receiving each other’s best self, being all we are made to be;
• setting ambitious, worthy, honourable goals;
• working with determination, perseverance;
• authenticity in endeavour;
• grow into a sense of vocation.
‘Let your light shine before others’ (Matthew 5:16)
