John Paul College is one of Queensland’s largest independent Early Learning to Year Twelve co-educational schools. Founded in 1982 as the state’s first Christian Ecumenical school, we have a collective enrolment of approximately 2000 students. John Paul College delivers a contemporary education grounded in traditional values. Our people are at the heart of all we do, and this is reflected in our purpose: to educate, to inspire, to make a difference. Located 20 minutes south of Brisbane’s CBD, the natural bushland campus features extensive and modern facilities to support a leading-edge technology programme and wide-ranging cultural and sporting opportunities. Our College motto is "Unity, Christ, Learning". This reflects our philosophy of ecumenical practice and academic excellence, underpinned by our Christian belief and values. Our College crest portrays, in visual terms, these values and ideals. Our College colours are burgundy and blue.
