John Paul College provides a comprehensive secondary education in a Catholic environment. It is a place where students feel safe and that they belong, a place where students’ individual strengths are nurtured and developed and a place where faith and a sense of community are fundamental to who we are. This is how we live out our mission: With Him is the fullness of life.
A John Paul College student knows who they are and how they intend to contribute to their community and the world. Our community welcomes students and their families from the parishes and communities of the greater Frankston region. We believe every student’s success is grounded in quality learning and teaching, and a school culture that fosters wellbeing, promotes resilience and inspires faith in action.
Our College has a rich heritage in the tradition of the fcJ sisters and the Marianist order. These women and men were instrumental in establishing a community inspired by faith in the good news of Jesus. We are inspired to continue the journey of faith and are nurtured by the charisms of these two orders.
At John Paul College we treasure our spirit of community and the values that flow from it—courage, perseverance and generosity.
The strength of our College is anchored in these values and the charism we inherit from the lives of our founders. Today, we live by our values and animate them within a culture that:
• Respects the dignity of every person
• Is inclusive, compassionate, just and forgiving, and
• Honours the integrity of creation through careful stewardship
"With Him is the Fullness of Life". JN10:10
Our motto inspires our vision: to be a school where every member of our community is empowered to achieve success, act with integrity and contribute to the common good.
At John Paul College every student's success is grounded in quality learning and teaching and a school culture that fosters wellbeing, promotes excellence and inspires faith in action.
