Principal’s Welcome


We invite you to explore our website as a first step towards understanding the wide range of learning opportunities afforded our students, from the moment they join our community.

As a Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 College, we value every individual, no matter where they are in their schooling journey and understand that providing a learning environment that fosters spiritual and personal growth is just as important as intellectual growth.

The world we live in is one that is constantly changing and evolving. In response to this, Av԰ Christi College equips students according to their needs, life-long learners and technologically savvy global citizens able to meet life’s challenges.

Guided by Catholic principles, we encourage all members to look to the Lord and aspire to be more ‘Christ-like’, showing themselves to be models of good works (Titus 2:7), so that the light of Christ may shine through everything they do.

In doing so, our hope is that every person - no matter how small, may be outstanding in every area they pursue, not just for themselves but for others as well.

We provide a well-rounded educational program for each child. We understand that our role is to provide a learning environment in which the intellectual, spiritual and personal needs of our students can be catered for in our academic and pastoral programs. Educational programs are created for gifted and talented students in a range of fields, as well as individualised support for students with disabilities or learning difficulties - the College caters for all students. Through these programs, students are encouraged to discover their vocations or life callings.

We utilise cutting edge technology to enhance our educational programs. Having been a leading digital school for many years and an Apple Distinguished School since 2012, teachers create and provide a range of learning resources for students, with content and assessment tasks made available to students and parents via relevant portals or through e-Books.

We enjoy a reputation for academic excellence and for educating young people to serve as school and community leaders, able to meet life’s challenges due to the support they receive from their families and the education gained from the College.

We motivate students both individually and collectively to achieve excellence by empowering them, teaching them to work together, learning alongside one another to achieve goals that will help them to realise their potential in the future.

Our students are encouraged to value the opportunities made available to them in pursuing not only their academic studies, but their interests in a range of extra-curricular activities.

The skills and knowledge gained from such pursuits ensure that our students can meet the challenges of our society with confidence. Av԰s, tours and immersion activities are offered to students each year, all of which can enhance their learning experiences.

We care for students. Pastoral Care at Av԰ Christi College means enhancing the dignity of each person within our community. It is ingrained into every part of the culture of the College –from their Homeroom teacher, the House system and the Heads of Year who oversee the collective pastoral program for students, to the psychological support offered to those who require it and the online tools available to support students who need help.

We are proudly a Catholic school with strong ties to the surrounding parishes, and a school that values the relationships built with these communities beyond graduation.

I hope that by exploring our website, you are able to catch a glimpse of the life of the College and all we have to offer.

Mr Jeff Allen
