Prescott College Southern was first established as Noarlunga Districts Adventist Primary School in 1977. For many years it was a two-teacher school with enrolments being primarily made up of Adventist children from the local area. In 1991 the school name was changed to Prescott Primary Southern, a focussed differentiated curriculum was developed, and children from the local community increased substantially with them currently making up the majority of the school enrolments. In 2012, we welcomed the addition of the middle school students as we migrated towards becoming an R-12 school and changed our name to Prescott College Southern. Our current enrolment is approximately 570 students.
