    St Mark's College is a K-12 co-educational college, operating within all federal (DEEWR) requirements and state (BOSTES) authorities. St. Mark's was initially established in 1996 at rented premises in Lidcombe and moved to our current Wattle Grove site in 1999.
    St Mark's College is proud of its Coptic Orthodox heritage, and this ethos exists in all areas throughout our school. Our faith is the cornerstone of our College community. The College is governed by the NSW Coptic Board of Education, responsible for our sister Colleges: St Mary & St Mina Coptic Orthodox College Bexley and St Bishoy Coptic Orthodox College Mt Druitt.
    Our school population consists of predominately of Coptic Orthodox students. However, St Mark's College is welcoming of students and their families from all backgrounds and cultures, currently boasting a current school population consisting of 21 different denominations. Increased interest from non-Coptic families who value the strong Christian ethos of the College currently attends from across 48 Sydney suburbs. The strong family feel of the College, the evident dedication and commitment of its professional staff, the powerful academic results achieved year after year are all elements that attract families wishing to enroll their children in a school that values education at both an academic and pastoral focus.
    Participation in Music, Sports, and other co-curricular activities is strongly promoted within the College, with the view to producing well-rounded individuals who can contribute positively to the future Australian society. Camps are an essential feature of the College curriculum, providing meaningful experiential learning and a diversity of cultural experiences for our students.
    All of our students are encouraged to strive for excellence in all of their pursuits. Excellence is always defined in relative rather than absolute terms. Personal best becomes the reference point for these determinations. A strong and committed staff helps our students achieve their educational goals within a caring and safe environment. St Mark's Coptic Orthodox College is a school that works in partnership with parents to create an atmosphere where Christian values and Coptic Orthodox tradition are the foundation of the school's practices and where students and staff feel secure and supported by all members of the school community. The distinctive, sincere, and continuous practice of Christian love, service, and humility provides students with the opportunity to develop and display a high moral standard. Our students are challenged to strive to achieve excellence and success in all areas of the curriculum by attaining their full potential, having confidence in who they are as Christian individuals, and becoming active participants in Church and the Australian community.
