St John Paul College has a rich history of providing a quality Catholic education for students from Year 7 to Year 12 in the Coffs Harbour region. Our motto refers to Jesus’ statement: I am the way, the truth and the life. (John 14:6), we are challenged to walk and to live in his truth.
St John Paul College fosters a safe and supportive learning environment centred on the Gospel values of respect, peace and justice, supported by our well-established partnership with family, community and parish.
Our strong focus on pastoral care ensures that every student is known and celebrated for their unique talents and academic growth. Our team of highly qualified and professional staff provide students with exciting learning experiences that prepare them to live and work as compassionate and critical thinkers.
We understand that when young people are nurtured by their families and supported by a caring and committed staff, they can reach and exceed personal goals. At St John Paul College, we welcome and encourage families to be active partners in their young person's learning journey as we work together to set our students up for success in life.
We invite you to explore the opportunities available to your young person at St John Paul College.
