St James College, an inner-city coeducational school catering to students from Year 5 to 12. They offer a unique learning environment in the junior school (Year 5 & 6) that combines a primary school approach with high school opportunities. This means your child will get a head start as they transition into a college setting, where they’ll be nurtured to become successful lifelong learners.
What sets St James College apart is its exceptional track record. The school consistently outperforms other exclusive inner-city schools in various fields, including sports, cultural performances, and academic pursuits like debating.
On campus, students benefit from extensive teaching and support resources, cutting-edge technology, exceptional cultural performance spaces, and state-of-the-art sporting facilities that help nurture champions.
But it’s not just about what happens within the school gates. St James College offers a range of enriching experiences beyond the classroom. Students have the opportunity to visit the college-owned Maroon Dam facility and also participate in life-changing immersions to places like the Northern Territory.
Don’t just take our word for it; hear from parents who have made the transition. Ellen Fanning, a renowned Australian journalist and the host of ABC TV’s “The Drum,” shared her experience. She couldn’t attend a university open day with her husband, but the school’s principal, Ann Rebgetz, personally took her son, James, around. Ellen was amazed by James’s newfound confidence and his clear vision of attending university and becoming a paralegal in just two years.
“I’d never imagined speaking of high expectations, that James (son) would go to university, but we’re going along on the weekend to Griffith University to talk to them about how James might engage there, and James is completely confident in explaining to me how that will happen in two years’ time and how he will get to be a paralegal,” Ms Fanning recently exclaimed at a school event.
The college firmly believes that education is a path to liberation and is committed to ensuring that financial constraints do not hinder access to their exceptional educational offerings. As part of this commitment, the college offers a bursary program and various other solutions to assist individuals who may face financial barriers to obtaining a high-quality education.
