One of the most sought after co-educational independent schools in Brisbane

Welcome to Cannon Hill Anglican College (CHAC).

Located in the inner eastern Brisbane suburb of Cannon Hill, CHAC is a distinctively innovative P-12 co-educational Anglican College. Set on 11.5 hectares of natural bushland, CHAC boasts highly awarded teachers, modern facilities and an enviable green setting for students to enjoy.


Founded in 1989, the College is relatively a young institution with a track record for delivering a balanced, progressive education and for creating compassionate and courageous individuals who are world and work-ready.

For parents searching for the right school for their child, we understand there are numerous factors which contribute to your decision. The key features of our College – which so many of our current parents rate as highly favourable – are:


Just right (not too big, not too small)

CHAC is the optimum size where students have access to opportunities, facilities, quality teachers and more, but they are not lost in the crowd. Children are known personally and their interests, passions and wellbeing catered for.

Co-educational Community

Our College has an educational and pastoral framework that recognises and addresses gender differences yet also emphasises empathy, emotional intelligence, teamwork and cooperation and respecting the individual. Our community proudly represents society.

Prep to Year 12 on one campus

Your child has stability by completing their entire schooling journey at CHAC from Prep to Year 12. With three sub schools (Primary, Junior Secondary and Senior Secondary) they will find their place and be nurtured accordingly to their stage of growth and development. They will feel a sense of community and belonging.

Exceptional Staff

CHAC is staffed by award-winning educators and specialist staff who are passionate about delivering challenging, contemporary curriculum and programs so that our students are deeply engaged, thriving and prepared for the real world when they leave College.

Green environment

Built within a melaleuca wetlands environment, CHAC students benefit from a natural green campus. With sustainability programs, a commitment to offsetting carbon-emissions and an eco-footprint, CHAC promotes a sense of wellbeing.

Character development

As an Anglican school, we follow a Christian ethos. Students are educated in a faith-led environment where they learn Christian values and undertake social justice work. Students develop character through a holistic approach to their education and guidance from staff.

Safe pastoral care

Our pastoral care framework and house system focuses on instilling a sense of safety, belonging and trust within our College community.

Balanced education

CHAC students are given a balanced education of academic rigour, co-curricular, Faith-led, service opportunities and more.
