Established in 1988, Marian College is a Catholic co-educational
systemic high school with classes from Years 7 to 12. The College is a learning
community offering a quality education that encourages each student and staff
member to achieve their personal best in all aspects of their learning and
teaching. As a Catholic community, faith development is embedded in both the
formal and informal practices, processes, structures and lived witness of the
members of the school community. Emphasis is placed on pastoral care of the
students and a school counsellor is available to assist the team of pastoral
care co-ordinators. A Peer Support program is offered for Year 7 students.
