St Johns College is a safe, supportive, diverse learning community where the unique dignity of each child is respected, nurtured and valued. Our students are welcomed from a range of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. The College welcomes enrolment applications from all students, including those from non-Catholic backgrounds. Fees are affordable and there is practical support for families who cannot afford to pay full school fees, especially in these unprecedented times when our society has been engulfed by the current global pandemic.
St Johns College is a coeducational Catholic systemic school that provides quality education from Years 7 to 12, supported by the evangelising mission of the Catholic Church. St Johns provides a learning environment that empowers students to be inspired, challenged and supported to become successful global citizens with a true sense of self-worth. The students receive a holistic education that encourages spiritual growth, academic achievement, cultural appreciation and sporting opportunities.
Since 1969, the strong sense of tradition at St Johns College has helped pave the way in developing confident and resilient young men and women who go on to become strong contributing members of our society. One of St Johns primary aims is to work in partnership with our parent body to equip our students with the necessary skills to be successful in navigating future pathways.
Embedded in college life is an inclusive culture and an expectation of servant leadership by our students to one another and to the wider community. St Johns College offers Academic and Sporting Scholarships and Bursaries for students who meet the criteria.
Year 7 and 8 classes are mixed ability for most courses. Students are invited to participate in extension classes for English and Mathematics. Year 9 and 10 classes are streamed into Advanced and Standard Classes for English, Maths and Science, while Catholic Studies, History, Geography and PDHPE are mixed ability classes. Students elect to study two electives from a comprehensive list of subjects on offer.
St Johns College offers an exciting extensive range of academic subjects to students in their senior years to allow students to have a greater choice in the courses they select. Courses of study range from rigorous academic subjects to TAFE and VET Pathways. Students are encouraged to select courses that best suit their needs, goals and ambitions for the future. The subjects they select should be ones they find interesting and challenging, and in some cases, will be a prerequisite for further study.
