Redfield College was founded in 1986 by a group of parents and
teachers — the PARED (Parents for Education) Foundation — on the principles
that parents are the primary educators and that schools exist primarily to give
parents support. At Redfield College, this support is found in the concern that
staff and peer example be fully positive and supportive of parents.

teaching areas for music and art, and extensive sporting grounds. The chapel
and library are centrally located.

Mathematics at all levels, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Modern and Ancient

study skills workshops, annual career interview programs, father-son camps,
class seminars, a wide array of sports, choir, concert band, big band,
debating, public speaking, Mock Trial, drama, and overseas exchange programs.
Welfare and personal development: Religious education aims to give
students a solid knowledge of the teachings of the Catholic faith. The
full-time chaplain is a priest of Opus Dei. The unique tutorial system sees
that each boy receives a personal mentor or tutor selected from the college’s
teaching staff. The tutor takes a personal interest in the progress of the boys
whom he tutors, acting on the parents’ behalf and co-ordinating the services of
the college for the family.
