A Learning Community

At the heart of our College is the mission of the Catholic Church and our own Mission Statement which challenges us to be a school community of faith, learning, respect and service in the Catholic tradition. Also at the heart of our Catholic College is the learning community. Together these are blended to form the core of our Catholic school learning community following in the teachings of Jesus.

We are committed to creating a learning community promoting educational excellence where opportunities exist for all students to be inspired and engaged in learning through the experience of a dynamic, relevant, innovative curriculum infused with Catholic values.

The Academic Council

The Academic Council meets weekly to provide leadership in the enhancement of  the learning and achievement of students in the College. They in turn, lead large numbers of teaching staff in their individual Faculties. The Academic Council contribute to the broad fabric of curriculum subject offerings, lead Common Assessment Tasks, assessment, continuous feedback and reporting processes within their Faculty.  They are a learning and teaching decision making body.

Three School Model of Achievement

The College is structured into a three school model of learning incorporating the Middle School (Years 7 and 8), Croagh Patrick (Year 9) and Senior School (Years 10-12).  Each School has a dedicated leadership team and teachers who specialise in working with each age band and their distinctive needs.  While each School has unique features and purposes, the tapestry which forms our College curriculum binds us together in the pursuit of academic excellence and achievement for all students at the College.
