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.

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.
