An education at St Vincent’s College is comprehensive with a full academic program plus a busy co-curricular schedule. Boarders take full advantage of these co-curricular activities, as well as participating in the after school and weekend boarding activities.
Our bright and spacious boarding house offers accommodation in twin rooms for Years 7 to 11 and single rooms in Year 12. Indoor and outdoor facilities encourage our Boarders to engage in structured and self-directed community building.
Our experienced and compassionate Boarding Coordinators encourage the Boarders to achieve their true potential. Under their care all manner of personalities learn to live harmoniously in Boarding.
The Boarding community attend a weekly Mass at our local Parish, St Canice’s and take active roles in the liturgy.
Afternoon and evening study is structured by learning stage and is supervised by Boarding and Teaching staff as well as Tertiary students.
