St Aloysius College

St Aloysius College

North Melbourne VIC, Melbourne City Central

Next year, St Aloysius College proudly takes a bold step towards the future, becoming the first Catholic co-educational secondary within the vibrant, multicultural City of Melbourne. With a very healthy and gender-balanced enrolled Year 7 2023 cohort, subsequent years will continue to welcome boys through the Year 7 intake until St Aloysius becomes fully co-educational in 2028.  The change continues the 134-year Mercy tradition of responding to local community needs and making education accessible to all talented young people, especially families seeking to educate their children together.

An Empowering Education

Academic programs at St Aloysius have been designed to encourage a lifelong enthusiasm for learning and discovery. We have a curriculum that blends the very best of educational tradition with an innovative, enquiry-based cross-curricular approach that allows students to make connections, synthesise knowledge and develop literacy skills in a collaborative culture underpinned by a focus on the wellbeing of and respect for the individual.

Inspiring Bright Futures

At St Aloysius we recognise the very important role that social, cultural and physical wellbeing play in the learning, personal growth and development experienced by our students during their six years at the college. The St Aloysius curriculum is enriched and extended by a vast co-curricular offering that is alive to the needs and wishes of the students and evolves as they do; the program encompasses sport, camps and outdoor education, drama, music and various school-based wellbeing programs. Students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of intra- and inter-school sporting competitions through both the ACS and SCSA, creative and performing arts programs (including choir, orchestra, production) and social and cultural extensions including debating and public speaking. Ever-evolving, and with increasingly future-focused resources and equipment, our Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) program is carefully designed to increase awareness and curiosity in these important fields, and to hone cross-disciplinary understanding. The college has a global focus with partner schools in Milan, Kyoto and Geneva that our students are able to visit as part of their languages and arts studies.

Where Individuals Succeed Together

St Aloysius staff are exceptionally well qualified in their various fields (academic and beyond!) and, most importantly, are committed to encouraging each student to achieve their own personal best, whatever this may look like. Throughout their secondary education years in this close-knit school, St Aloysius students are known by, and know, their teachers. These strong relationships foster a culture of inquiry, and our students leave as creative, independent thinkers with a love of learning and solid foundations that prepare them to step out into the world and embrace their collective futures.

In an environment cultivated by the individuality of each member of the community, there is no ‘typical’ St Aloysius Student. We celebrate our diversity. We accept all and thrive on the fusion of cultures and backgrounds that enable our students to flourish. The college is the thread that connects these vibrant, dedicated, and thoughtful young people.

Innovation and Experimentation

At St Aloysius College, we pride ourselves on our commitment to stretching the boundaries of a conventional education. Our students are dynamic learners, confident to identify and build connections between ideas and learning areas, and are empowered to apply these without limit to the expectations of the myriad different futures they define for themselves.v
