Development of the whole person through positive relationships within a family-like environment is the core of Marist education at Mt Maria College.
Our Community welcomes students from various faith backgrounds who are supportive of our mission and values. The College has new purpose-built Middle and Senior school learning facilities, which also cater for the growing Arts, Music and Sporting programs at Mt Maria.
Learning at Mt Maria College is centred around:
As educators of young people we know that every student has many gifts, talents and interests to uncover during their secondary schooling. We believe that participation in a range of co-curricular activities is an important part of the holistic development of the child as well as ensuring each young person develops a sense of belonging. Students who actively participate in co-curricular programs typically experience better academic results and enjoy more satisfaction with their overall learning and school experience.
The wellbeing and care of our students is a fundamental aspect of Marist Catholic education. The College places significant emphasis on our Pastoral Care Program based on the philosophy of Saint Marcellin Champagnat, founder of the Marist Brothers.
We are a strong community which centres on developing positive relationships within a family atmosphere where people are welcomed, respected and valued. We believe learning is ongoing and achieved through many contexts and life experiences.
Our way of replicating the family atmosphere within the College is through our House system and Tutor Groups. Each student at Mt Maria is welcomed into one of six Houses each under the leadership of a House Co-ordinator. The House Co-ordinator maintains an overview of progress and provides the general care and organisation of each House group.
