In making the choice of Secondary Schools, we know that families seek a school where their child will be happy, where fellow students are friendly and dedicated and where he or she will receive a range of opportunities and the best possible education.

Established in 1888, St Aloysius College has always been a leader in education, and has deliberately remained focused on the individual. We are a small school for good reason – our size means that each student is known and valued, and our one campus advantage means every student learns in one central community.

There is no typical ‘St Aloysius student’. We celebrate our diversity. We accept all and thrive on the fusion of cultures and backgrounds that enable our students to flourish. The College is the thread that connects these vibrant, committed and thoughtful young people. We offer an environment that enables every  student who is willing to become an active part of the St Aloysius community, to shine. We build strong relationships with our families even before students commence their schooling at St Aloysius, thus easing the transition into the next stage of their education.

As with all Catholic schools, fees are an important aspect of our College income – in addition, we strive to keep our fees at St Aloysius affordable, thereby offering a quality Mercy education to all families within our community. Fees are reviewed annually and  families are notified before the end of the preceding school year. The global fee structure incorporates fees, local excursions, outdoor education and a device. The fee schedule only applies to domestic student enrolments. Further information on school fees for international students is available on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) website.
