Our story began in 1917 when we became one of the first providers of education in sport in Australia. Much has changed since then but what we stand for hasn’t.  ACPE is a close-knit community united by a shared passion.  We encourage you to learn and explore in a friendly and vibrant community where you can rely on others to help you achieve the best you can.  At ACPE you will learn beyond the classroom and you will make friends for life and gain much more than a degree.
