Co-education to thrive!
We are a school for all, welcoming, nurturing and empowering all students.
St Mary’s College is inner Melbourne’s only Catholic co-educational?secondary school.
Our values of respect, justice, compassion, inclusivity, and courage guide our teaching and support of students. Girls and boys at St Mary’s College learn together in an environment of respect, excellence, enquiry, challenge, and fun. Our learning environment reflects the world beyond the classroom.
The size of our College allows all students to be known and develop a deep sense of belonging to our community. Our students are active participants in their learning, who are empowered to think and act for themselves. We nurture a love of learning inspiring each student to achieve their best. Our contemporary learning practices offer immersion opportunities within and outside the classroom to apply learning to the real world.
Our College offers a mix of modern learning environments and historic architecture that provides a physical link to our history and Catholic traditions of Edmund Rice and Nano Nagle. We are proudly a school in the Edmund Rice Tradtion.
Our students are challenged and empowered to build a just world for all applying our Catholic values of compassion, justice, and peace, enacted within our community.
Year 9 the Nobilitas Program at St Mary’s College is an exciting experience of collaborative learning where positive relationships, student voice and real-world thinking are prioritised. We explore relationships with one another; relationships with family and community and most importantly relationship with self. Throughout the year we connect students with the wider community in rich and meaningful ways, working with local councils, and community groups, Indigenous groups and voluntary organisations. A truly transformative year.
We look forward to providing your child with a caring and supportive environment where every student has a place and a voice and can add value to the world they enter when they leave our College. We invite you to be part of our College community and encourage you visit to see what makes our College special.
Our campuses are conveniently located near the corner of Chapel Street and Dandenong Road.
Only 8 minutes by train from Flinders Street Station on the Sandringham Line, Windsor Station is a short 200m walk from the College. Trams and Buses also stop outside the gates. Our campuses are adjacent and utilise a safe overpass that connects the two campuses.
Welcome to St Mary’s College.
St Mary’s College is a Catholic school in the Edmund Rice tradition.
At St Mary’s College we centre everything we do around our 5 core values. RESPECT, JUSTICE, COMPASSION, INCLUSIVITY and COURAGE.
As a principal of a Catholic Co-Educational School where females and males interact in classrooms and common social spaces, it is important that the emphasis of our values is at the forefront of our teaching and learning. That at some point during their day at school, our students will uphold one or all of our values, just as we hope they will do as adults.
At St Mary’s College, we believe in fostering healthy relationships between the boys and girls who will be the future leaders of our society. For us that means bringing them together, not holding them apart. Placing them in situations where they can lead, have a voice, listen to the thoughts of others and work together to achieve a common goal.
We partner with our families to instil a deep sense of respect, justice and belonging in our students that transcends the classroom. Everything we do to teach and support students is built on the fabric of love, values, beliefs and habits each family instils throughout their child’s life and we welcome the involvement of parents and families in our school community.
Our education occurs through a moral and social lens. Our social justice programs, pastoral, creative, sporting and academic pursuits and the well-designed learning programs are all tailored for the unique and differing needs of junior, middle and senior school students. We educate our students to be good people who can add value to the world they enter when they leave our school.
A St Mary’s College co-education is a preparation for the years beyond school, regardless of what pathway is chosen by our students. Where respect is the basis of all their relationships, they act with justice and fairness towards each other, they show compassion and empathy towards the marginalised, they are welcoming and inclusive, celebrating diversity and they act with courage learning from the mistakes they will make along the way.
We look forward to providing your child with a caring and supportive environment where every student has a place and a voice. Our innovative learning and wellbeing programs aligned with mutually respectful relationships enable each student’s intrinsic worth to shine. Preparing students for life beyond school, our programs enable students of diverse abilities to step purposefully into their future.
I invite you to be part of our school community. The information in the following pages provides an introduction to our school, but I encourage you to come and visit to see what makes our school special.
