College Community

JPC Board

John Paul College is jointly owned and operated by the Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS) which was established in 2020 to take responsibility for many of Melbourne’s Catholic schools. Prior to 2021 the College was jointly owned by the parishes of St Anne's Seaford, St Francis Xavier's Frankston, St John's East Frankston, St Joseph's Chelsea and St Jude's Langwarrin.

John Paul College is run by the Principal with the support of the College Board. The Board is a representative group of the community which is responsible for the development of the College and provides advice on a range of policy matters, including faith and mission, educational priorities, capital development, student enrolment and fees.
