Wollongong High School of The Performing Arts is a culturally diverse, co-educational, comprehensive high school with a high quality performing arts focus. The twin goals 'academic excellence' and 'excellence in the performing arts' succinctly sum up the schools purpose and focus.

The school enrols students who reside within the designated local enrolment area as well as students who gain entry through the audition program. A limited number of offers are made to students who reside outside the drawing area and wish to access the educational programs of the school. As well, in 2000 a small number of full fee paying international students and overseas students accompanying their parents on student visas, were enrolled.
