    St Mary's Coptic Orthodox College is an independent, co-educational Christian College catering for students from foundation to year 12. The College was founded in 1991 and has grown into a well-established community with over 800 students from Christian backgrounds. Many of our students are bused to the College using our dedicated door to door bus service. The College is committed to upholding the safe child standards Ministerial Order 870.

    As a Coptic Orthodox College, we recognize that we exist to foster and develop, within an Orthodox environment, an awareness of Christ and His teachings. We seek to do this by providing and maintaining the general spiritual, safe atmosphere where children are nurtured and developed in the Coptic Orthodox faith. We see maintaining the Coptic identity and teaching the Coptic Orthodox religion and Coptic language as essential for the College.

    We aim to create a festive atmosphere where children and young people can grow and learn, developing a high level of personal integrity and sincere respect for others with their varying cultural, academic, and socio-economic differences.

    At St Mary's Coptic Orthodox College, we respect and appreciate each person's value as an individual. We encourage children and young people to be aware of the demands of living in a multicultural society. We aim to develop self-respect, self-determination, personal initiative, and a sense of community to prepare them to be respected and honorable citizens in a global community.

    St Mary's Coptic Orthodox College is committed to creating a culture of child safety to lower or eliminate the risk of harm to children and young people. Our school will continue to strive to provide the best education we can, one which will equip students with spiritual, cultural, and international awareness while always keeping within the confines of our Coptic Orthodox belief and traditions.
