St Laurence’s College offers a programme of Studies from Year 5 to 12 where the vision is a holistic education for each student that centres on “liberation for life to the full” (John 10:10).

The curriculum at St Laurence’s College is dynamic and provides experiences from which students can learn.

The College is committed to providing students with the academic and personal skills to equip them for life and to allow flexibility of career path. Students are encouraged to pursue a balanced general education that while it engages them at the level of their learning readiness; also challenges them to pursue excellence through endeavour, while acting with integrity and justice.
An authentic Catholic community that celebrates and reflects Edmund Rice’s vision of Presence, Compassion and Liberation by ‘acting justly, loving tenderly and walking humbly with God’ (Micah 6:8)

A dynamic educational community for boys and young men that maximises their potential to be both active contributors to and prophetic voices within an ever changing society

An inclusive community, which continuously seeks to create and renew respectful, compassionate relationships by which all can experience what it means to be fully human.
Summoned by the call of our College motto: facere et docere: To do and to teach, St Laurence’s College strives to implement the Charter for Catholic Schools in the Edmund Rice Tradition so that it is the ‘lived reality’ in the community.

In this way, St Laurence’s College, through nurturing respectful, compassionate relationships aims to:

Foster Christian faith, personal worth and belonging through spiritual growth, reconciliation, compassion and generosity

Educate boys and young men holistically in spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional, physical, cultural and social dimensions of life

Provide a safe and sustainable environment in which our boys and young men learn and live

Inspire all to live lives of service especially to the poor and marginalised both locally and globally.

Principal's Message

On behalf of our school community, I welcome you to the St Laurence’s College Private School's Guide page.

A St Laurence’s College education is characterised by excellence, inclusive practices, social justice and our focus on others. I am proud to be a part of this unique community.

As a Catholic school for boys in the Archdiocese of Brisbane, we have been operating since 1915.

With a total enrolment of over 1,900 boys, and with many international students, we accept students from Year 5 to Year 12, drawing from a wide area of Brisbane.

As a College conducted in the Edmund Rice tradition, we proudly offer a distinctive educational philosophy, that is based on a commitment to education as liberation.

Our staff are enthusiastic, highly dedicated and committed to the spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual and social needs of our students through life long learning. They come with a wide range of experience, skills and expertise and a deep commitment to provide students with quality relationships and positive learning experiences. We look forward to working closely with our students and parents/caregivers.

Please feel free to explore our website and contact the school for further information.

I invite you to join us on a tour of the facilities during our Open Day, so that you can experience our warm and engaging environment first hand.
