Welcome to St John's College

​​​​​​​​​​St John's College has a current enrolment of 900 students in Years 7 to Year 12 and is staffed by professional, innovative, caring and dedicated teachers. St John's has been established for forty years on its present site, over eighty years as a Catholic secondary school in Nambour. With outstanding modern facilities, St John's College has a fine tradition of scholastic, cultural, sporting and extra- curricular success and excellence.​

St John's College is built on a foundation of high expectations, where good people, Gospel Values and positive attainment come together to create an exceptional educational experience.  At St John's College, we prioritise the happiness and safety of our students. Our dedicated and supportive community fosters an environment where every child feels a strong sense of belonging and connection, is valued and encouraged to explore and achieve their full potential.

We believe in the power of a quality Catholic education to guide students towards becoming respectful, responsible, resilient and compassionate individuals. Through a curriculum embedded in these principles, we inspire our students to embrace and value inclusivity, empathy, humility, kindness, stewardship and an authentic care for the other. 

Our approach to learning is centred around meeting students at their stage of development and level of readiness. We understand each child is unique, with different strengths, talents and learning styles. With personalised attention and a tailored curriculum, we ensure that every child receives the support they need to thrive academically and personally, so that they meet and exceed their individual goals and aspirations. 

At St John's College, our staff go beyond academic achievement to foster holistic development. Our comprehensive programs encompass sports, leadership, arts, music and many extra- curricular activities, enabling students to explore their interests and passions outside the classroom.

I believe that St John's provides the best Catholic Secondary schooling on the Sunshine Coast. Offering a contemporary and future focused coeducational secondary education with an emphasis on Catholic Christian values, we prepare our students to become confident and creative individuals, successful lifelong learners, and active and informed members of an ever-changing global community.

Enrol and unlock a world of possibilities for your child's growth and success. Join us at St John's College and become a 'Johnnie' today. Together, we'll work in positive partnership to shape a brighter tomorrow for your child!
