Discover John Paul College

John Paul College is a Catholic co-educational secondary College in Frankston. 

John Paul College provides a comprehensive secondary education in a Catholic environment. It is a place where students feel safe and know that they belong. A place where students’ individual strengths are nurtured and developed and where faith and a sense of community are fundamental to our identity.

From the Principal

Vision, Mission and Values

Inspired by the Gospels’ values, John Paul College provides an exemplary and holistic education within the Catholic tradition. 

Our community welcomes students and their families from the parishes and communities of the greater Frankston region. We believe every student’s success is grounded in quality learning and teaching, and a school culture that fosters wellbeing, promotes resilience and inspires faith in action.

Our Vision

Strategic Improvement

At John Paul College we have an ambitious vision for the future, underpinned by a desire to help every student fulfil their potential and be a leader in education.

The College's Strategic Plan (2022-2025) distills our vision, mission, and values into three strategic intentions, setting out specific goals for each. The College has developed a Masterplan for improvement and expansion of facilities over the next 10 years, ensuring our 14 hectare grounds and buildings meet the demands of an advancing curriculum.
