Padua College is the only school in Australia under the care of the Order of Friars Minor.
Inspired by the teachings of St Francis, the Franciscan Friars established Padua College as a school to cater for boys from Year 5 to Year 12.
Over sixty-five years on, the College has grown to 1470 students and while there have clearly been some educational changes over this time, we still hold our Franciscan heritage very close to our heart. We deliver dynamic, innovative pedagogy in the three phases of learning from Year 5 to Year 12.
We introduce our students to a wide range of belief systems and multi-faith disciplines, and to a Catholic and Franciscan world view. This vision is permeated by our values of Joy, Courtesy, Humility, Simplicity and Peace.
