Our Community

St Joseph’s College is a Catholic school in the Marist tradition. Our vision is to educate boys for life, learning and leadership for the common good, and we reaffirm the values and traditions of a supportive, non-selective learning and Catholic faith environment. We commit to excellence in an integrated program of teaching and learning, co-curricular activities and pastoral care that seeks out, tests and affirms the best in each boy.

It is our heartfelt mission to provide exceptional education and care for boys. Our priority is to be known as a modern and successful school, building upon our great traditions, values and the strength of our College community.

St Joseph’s College is committed to educating the students in its care to become men who value and nurture their faith long after they leave school. The College is inspired by the life and vision of St Marcellin Champagnat who, in post-revolutionary France, saw the plight of the poor (particularly those who had no hope of receiving an education), and consequently began the order of Marist Brothers to fulfil this need. 

A Family man first

Our boys learn that true leadership for the common good, does not come from the front. Our boys learn to be virtuous, helpful and caring members of society. As a Joe Boy, he will always be a family man first. Your son will only be a new boy for one day, and from that day on, he'll be a Joe Boy for life.
