Cannon Hill Anglican College (familiarly known as CHAC) is an independent, co-educational, day school affiliated with the Anglican Church of Australia.


The College, originally called Cannon Hill College, opened in 1989 with eighty-nine students and three buildings. In 1994, it became an Anglican school in the Diocese of Brisbane, and changed its name to Cannon Hill Anglican College to reflect this. The school has had four principals: Rod Wells, the College founder, Suzanne Bain, Greg Wain and current Principal Robyn Bell. Currently, the school caters for Prep to Year 12, with approximately 975 students. It is a co-educational College.[1]


The College has a number of modern facilities, including an 1100 seat auditorium, a design and technology workshop, product design studio, graphic design studio and a research centre. A new science facility on the west side of the school. Sporting facilities include AFL, archery, basketball, cricket, hockey, netball, rugby, soccer, tennis and volleyball.

Most noteworthy of the College's facilities is its integrated arts facility, which incorporates a visual arts wing and lecture theatre; music centre with sound-proof teaching studios (including the professional recording studio Ghostgum Audio); orchestral recording studio and dedicated drama studios.[2]


CHAC's Houses are all named after islands in Moreton Bay. Initially, there were only four Houses - Moreton, Peel, Saint Helena and Stradbroke. In 2001, two new Houses, Macleay and Russell, were added.
