​​​Thank you for taking the time to inform yourself about St Benedict's College.
We are a co-educational Catholic secondaryClaire McLaren College administered by Brisbane Catholic Education. Our motto “In Omnibus Deus”, Latin for “God in All Things” underpins all that we do and the way that we do it.  We follow the example of Saint Benedict and hope to imbue in our students the values of service, hard work, humility, stewardship, balance and community. As our Mission Statement indicates, we aim to enable each student to use their God given gifts to become successful lifelong learners who are self-directed, creative, confident and reflective; fully able to engage with and contribute to the community and the world in which they live.
A special feature of our College is that our smaller size enables students and staff to get to know each other as individuals and to respond therefore to individual needs including those needing learning support or gifted extension.  In structured and appropriately designed lessons, emphasis is given to engaging in technology rich, 21st century learning. Flexible and innovative learning experiences are created where all students can develop a love of learning, a sense of curiosity, and an ability to be innovative, adaptable and resilient. A diverse and broad based education in the middle years, leads to a variety of senior school study options and pathways including university (OP) and vocational options.  We offer a full range of core and elective studies, including extension and excellence programs.
The current teachings of the Catholic Church, particularly as they relate to young people of today, together with the study of scripture, ethics, morality and ritual are covered in Religion classes. A Pastoral Care Program provides our students with opportunities for personal, interpersonal and social development while the extensive co-curricular program enables students to actively participate in cultural, sporting and community based activities.
St Benedict’s College has a team of highly professional, experienced, dedicated, and most of all, caring staff. This is extremely important in ensuring that students are happy at school and are able to achieve their potential in whatever subjects or areas of study are chosen.
As you consider St Benedict’s College for your son or daughter, I can assure you of our strong support and our commitment to your child’s personal success and well-being. Please explore our website further.  We are building a wonderful College community and hope that your family will be a part of our bright future.
