Welcome to St John’s Catholic College and to our website

As a family, there is probably no more important decision you make for your children than where they go to school. Our website provides an insight into what it is like to be part of our College community.

Our College motto: Strong in Faith, Education and Tradition imbues every aspect of every day. Founded by the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart in 1960, we believe that a true education challenges the mind and the heart. We believe that learning is central, important and not-negotiable. We provide students with a firm grounding in the Gospel values of honesty, justice, peace and mercy with a true sense of respect and care for ourselves and each other. Little things, such as manners, uniform and service, matter at St John’s.

At St John’s Catholic College we do follow a Catholic ethos, and want our students to learn, achieve and excel inspired by Gospel values. At the same time, we value diversity and have respect for all faiths as well as those of no faith. Families from other faith backgrounds are welcome as a part of our school community.

St John’s Catholic College provides a balanced, quality education for all of our students from Year Seven to Year Twelve on two large campuses in the heart of Darwin. We are though “One College”, a blend of local students as well as those from all over Australia and the world. St John’s long tradition of academic, vocational and extra-curricular excellence and a reputation for developing outstanding young men and women who go on to make a significant contribution in our world. We are proud to have scientists engineers, politicians, lawyers, award winning actors, doctors, Olympians, mechanics, teachers, Religious, and Norm Smith Medallists amongst our alumni. 

A website can only tell you so much of the story.  Please contact us to arrange a visit so that you can see us in action and see how you can become part of the St John’s Catholic College community.
