About Us

St Joseph’s College has been at the forefront of secondary education in Australia for 140 years.  An independent Catholic school, we endeavour to mould boys into confident, resilient and caring young men who will make a positive contribution to society.

Joeys, as we are affectionately known, is a comprehensive school that gives students of all abilities an opportunity to shine and reach their academic potential. A culture of inclusiveness is actively fostered. Each boy is encouraged to achieve his own personal best – to pursue excellence in all that he attempts.

The College motto In meliora contende – striving for better things – encapsulates this ethos, providing a bedrock principle all boys can live by. It works in tandem with You’ll Never Walk Alone, the song of unity and mateship Joeys students roar at sporting events and other celebratory occasions.
