Boarding School Feature
ON A BEAUTIFUL 34 hectare site, 20 minutes south of Brisbane’s central business district lies John Paul College, one of Queensland’s largest and most progressive independent, co-educational schools, offering an Early Learning to Year 12 educational journey, including boarding from Year 7.
Students come to John Paul College from across Australia and the world to join our boarding program; providing boutique, village-style accommodation nestled in native bushland adjacent to the main campus.
John Paul College offers one of the lowest student to staff ratios of any Australian boarding school, reflecting the value placed on the safety and well-being of students entrusted to our care.
Accommodation is provided in villas which house eight students in four twin-share bedrooms, each bedroom with its own bathroom.
A communal kitchenette and lounge encourages shared conversations for villa residents.
Offering increased privacy and independence, all villas are equipped with swipe pass security technology and are within immediate proximity of staff accommodation.
Boarders have access to recreational facilities including ovals, a games room, dining hall, basketball court, fire pit and full use of the facilities at John Paul College including an aquatics centre, double court indoor stadium and gymnasium.
The college works to ensure that every student has a viable academic pathway that leads to post-school study or the workplace through a comprehensive curriculum offering 47 senior subjects and six Vocational Educational Certificates.
The rich educational experience is complemented by extensive sporting and performing arts co-curricular and social activities that keeps boarders engaged and connected, and enables them to develop maturity, independence, self-confidence and resilience.
