Mentors help students to marry sports, dance and health passions with future employment opportunities.



ACPE was founded in 1917 as a physical education training institute for young women. The college commenced operations at the Normanhurst School with an initial induction of seven students, six of whom were Normanhurst graduates. In 1919 the Australian College of Physical Education and the Swords Club were jointly registered – a connection that is reflected to this day in the ACPE emblem.
Frank Stuart maintained that the aim of physical education was to "gain physical perfection. It is not the ideal to gain muscular strength alone, but to gain the perfect balance, wherein a healthy body, working balanced against a healthy mind, achieves that co-ordination and harmony of body and mind."
From 1949 to 1970, ACPE developed a reputation for producing outstanding teachers, much sought-after in the independent school sector.
In 2000 the college moved to its current site at 8 Figtree Drive, Sydney Olympic Park. ACPE was purchased by global education provider Study Group in 2009. The College is currently led by Brian Nook, Dean and Head of College.
