North Sydney Boys High School is a selective school with strong traditions of high academic achievement and excellence in the fields of sport, the arts and community service. Students living in NSW and holding Australian citizenship or permanent residency may apply for enrolment. 

Entry at the Year 7 level is on academic merit, as determined by the state-wide Selective Schools Entrance Test. This test is managed by the Selective Schools Unit of the Department of Education and Training. Enrolment in Years 8-12, also on academic merit, is managed by a school-based panel which relies upon a screening test and educational documents submitted by the applicant. 

The school aims to provide for its students an environment which is challenging, enriching and supportive, and which encourages them to fulfil their individual potential. Consistent with the school's selective charter, academic success is central to our purpose. 

However, as our students possess many abilities beyond the purely academic, the school fosters and encourages other social and life skills through a comprehensive range of co-curricular activities.
