Choosing the perfect school for your child is an important decision. You want to be confident that your choice of our  College is the right one. Let us explain what makes St Aloysius special.



The St Aloysius

In making that choice, we know that you are seeking a school where your 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.

School Uniform

The St Aloysius school uniform is an important part of our culture and identity and our students take great pride in the wearing it. 

We work closely with our suppliers to ensure costs are reasonable and items are durable and well presented. It is an expectation that students wear their correct uniform at all times.

College Fees

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.
