St Brendan’s College Boarding offers a sprawling 300 acre-campus with abundant space, facilities, academic and extra-curricular opportunities for the development of boys to young men.

The College is a spacious ‘home away from home’ for boys with quality staffing and support so parents can be assured their son’s care and welfare is our ultimate priority.

St Brendan’s College has been specialising in the provision of Residential Care for young men since 1940. With such a wealth of experience, we understand the unique needs of our boarding students and their families. Our qualified and experienced staff provide a level of care that resembles that of a family home. Our professional and caring staff provide a safe and structured environment and support the boys through any academic or personal issues that may arise.  The daily routine for each Residence is controlled and supervised by Heads of Residence and the House Parents. They are well supported by a trained team of supervisors to ensure comprehensive duty of care.  All Heads of Residence, House Parents and Supervisors live on-site, have “Working with Children” clearances and are in-serviced regularly in the latest strategies and innovations in Residential Care.

Specifically, the residential community of St Brendan’s College aims:

  • To be a caring, nurturing community founded in the virtues of love, acceptance and tolerance;
  • To reach out to all young people, engage them on their own terms, accept them as they are and yet challenge them at all times to be the best person they possibly can;
  • To develop a strong sense of community built on the ideals of faith and service, where the young person has scope and support to develop physically, intellectually, socially, emotionally and spiritually;
  • To provide an atmosphere of dignity and respect for all based on clear values of faith and personal spirituality;
  • To encourage all members to grow in faith, love and respect by providing opportunities for community service and leadership.

The focus is strongly pastoral and is founded in sound educational and spiritual practices developed specifically for young men. The formation programs are responsive to the ever-changing needs of the modern teenager while respecting the necessity for strong moral and behavioural standards.
