St Peter's College is at the heart of a nurturing, inclusive and safe rural community. We are a co-educational day and boarding school for young people aged 11 - 18. St Peter's College was set-up in 1969 by the Institute of Charity (the Rosminian Order) and the Sisters of Mercy as the first co-educational Catholic school in Australia and New Zealand. The school is based on Christian principles within the Catholic tradition. Our three key values are compassion, commitment and community.
At St Peter's we are concerned with educating the whole person. We are justifiably proud of our academic success, as seen in our NCEA results. However, we believe that a good school is about much more than academic success alone. Our students enjoy a wonderful variety of sporting and cultural activities outside the classroom.
Students who study with us are able to choose either homestay or hostel accommodation.
