    • Profile

      John Paul College is a Catholic co-educational secondary College in Frankston that has been providing opportunities for students to learn and grow since 1979. As principal of the College, I take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to explore all that our wonderful College offers. I hope that you find the comprehensive information about John Paul College on our website which will give you a sense of the beautiful setting of our school and the richness and depth of our heritage and all that we offer to assist our young people to thrive and make a difference in the world.

      John Paul College is a well-established Catholic school providing high quality teaching and facilities for learning, sports, music and the arts. The College was founded in 1979 in the merger of two single gender Catholic schools on this site, Stella Maris fcJ College for girls (established in 1968) and Marianist College for boys (1973).

      Our College has a rich heritage in the tradition of the fcJ Sisters and the Marianist order. These men and women were instrumental in establishing a community inspired by faith in the good news of Jesus. We too are inspired to continue the journey of faith and are nurtured and guided by the charisms of these two orders, as we work together for the benefit of our young people.

      John Paul College continues to respond to the ever more rapidly evolving educational landscape and expectations of society as we educate and inspire future generations of young men and women who can critically reflect on the world and respond with passion and compassion to the challenges and opportunities of a new age.

      John Paul College provides a comprehensive secondary education in a Catholic environment. It is a place where students feel safe and know that they belong, a place where students’ individual strengths are nurtured and developed and where faith and a sense of community are fundamental to our identity. This is how we live out our mission: With Him is the fullness of life.

      It is the students, staff and parents in our College community that make our school such a wonderful place to be. I hope that you will be encouraged to visit us to see all that makes us unique.
