Founded in 1963 by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan, the Mater Christi College encourages excellence in all things and aims to develop informed, compassionate and creative students. With over 1000 students, the college offers a wide range of subjects to meet the diverse interests and abilities and learning styles of students. The college acknowledges the potential of all students as dynamic learners who are seeking, achieving and celebrating and as citizens of our future who are challenging, risking, supporting and promising. The college and its students are committed to an authentic relationship with others and the earth. Mater Christi College has an established International Student Program and students of all religions and cultural backgrounds are welcomed and supported through the challenging and rewarding experience of studying overseas in a second language.
Facilities: The college enjoys a beautiful setting in the foothills of Sherbrooke Forest. Outstanding modern facilities and a 1:1 MacBook program support the innovative and engaging curriculum.
Curriculum: Mater Christi College is an IB World School.  In Years 7 to 10, the curriculum is based on the Middle Years Program (MYP) of the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO). This internationally recognised program emphasises skill development and knowledge acquisition as well as personal excellence ­— an ideal preparation for senior schooling.  In Years 11 and 12, students begin to specialise and can study the VCE, VET and VCAL courses that suit how they learn best and where they want to go next.
Sport: Students participate in a range of sporting activities including netball, soccer, athletics, triathlon, volleyball, hockey, basketball, tennis, cricket and swimming. Opportunities are provided for students to experience a range of sports, to compete in inter-school competitions and training programs are provided for elite performers.
Extra-curricular activities: Learning outside the classroom is a significant part of the college philosophy. Students are invited to participate in many programs in the performing arts, leadership training, outdoor education, community outreach and sports.
Student welfare programs: Mater Christi is well recognised for its pastoral care culture and structures.  Leaders and teachers are committed to the welfare of all students
and are supported by the professional skills of college psychologists, the chaplain and nurses.
