JPC presents your child with the ultimate preparation for that future, for the pursuit of their future self. We are proud to help prepare our students for their personal quest to change the world, to make a difference.

Our learning community provides your family with the opportunity to reach their individual potential for living a contributing and fulfilling life, one where Christian Ecumenism is foundational, where our values are embraced, where mutual respect demands a hospitality that reaches out and welcomes people of all cultures and faiths, and where excellence in every endeavour is sought and applauded.

Ready for the journey

The John Paul College journey begins as early as Kindergarten when our youngest students begin to explore, questions, experiment and play.

This continues through the Junior School years with a blend of the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Australian Curriculum, giving priority to foundation skills, knowledge and understanding in the context of a caring community.


Ready to challenge

Year 4 marks the beginning of the notebook computer program at the College, integrating technologies into a student's everyday learning environment.

Our specialist middle years' pastoral and learning programs aim to engage each student in learning while challenging them to grow. Building relationships and creating confidence helps to shape the person that is yet to be, recognising that academic progress during these early adolescent years depends on students feeling emotionally and socially connected.


Ready for tomorrow

Whatever their destination, we offer exceptional choice for our Senior students as they prepare for tomorrow and make decisions about life after school.

As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, learning for life in our global community is very much a reality for our students. We aim to provide each child with an innovative education and internationally-oriented curriculum that delivers real world learning.

And with a variety of pathways to prepare them for the real world, our students really are REAL WORLD READY.
Ready for the future

John Paul College is set on a 35 hectare campus located in Daisy Hill, on the south-side of Brisbane.

Features of our campus include landscaped gardens and wireless networked contemporary buildings, purpose-built to meet the needs of our students and the wider College community.

JPC Scholarships

The John Paul College scholarship and bursary program is open to new students entering JPC from Year Five and is designed to identify and celebrate students who have strengths and expertise in a variety of areas, providing opportunities for students to develop and be challenged in a nurturing environment.

We offer part remission of fees to students who meet the standards set out for each individual scholarship category for the tenure of their study at JPC, until the end of Year Twelve.

We have a strong commitment to assisting students who would greatly benefit from a JPC education, but who, without financial aid, would be unable to attend.

Principal's Image

Since 1982, we have built a College and a culture in which we demonstrate care for each other – for people both in and beyond our community. 

As a Christian Ecumenical College founded on the motto, Unity | Christ | Learning, we remain true to these in 2021.

On a daily basis, we can see it through the interactions of students across the College as they reach out to help each other. It can be seen in our Year Twelve classmates when they visit the classes of younger students or when an older accomplished musician takes the time to play in a beginner band and encourage the younger students.

We are a unique College. To have students from more than 45 different nationalities is a remarkable reflection of the broader Australian population and I am intensely proud of our harmonious and compassionate JPC Family as we respect and nurture our multi-faith community.

We know that parent and broader family involvement in the life of each student makes a difference in the manner in which he or she integrates into school life and also has an impact on their academic outcomes. Parents who are interested and engaged in their child’s schooling, help support that young person to get the best out of their schooling journey. As a College, we want to partner with you to ensure that your child or children take full advantage of the extensive opportunities offered by the College and that they embrace the academic life of our school, with energy, focus and commitment.

We are a College that is serious about academic outcomes. Our rich and diverse co-curricular program provides a quality and balanced all-round approach to our educational offering. Our students are at the heart of all we do, and this is reflected in our purpose: To Educate, To Inspire, To Make a Difference.

JPC creates opportunities and pathways for all students to excel, develop character and become world ready within our culturally diverse and inclusive community. We want them to be authentic young people who demonstrate responsibility and respect for others. We want to prepare them to Be The Future.

Welcome to John Paul College.
