About Saint Stephen’s College

Saint Stephen’s College is a co-educational, Preparatory to Year 12 independent school at the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.

Students at Saint Stephen’s College enjoy impressive success in all areas of academics, sporting and cultural pursuits, but it is the ‘spirit’ of our community that truly sets us apart from other schools. We strive to develop students who are full of character, who are empowered to reach their full potential, and who live their lives as responsible global and local citizens.

We value the development of global perspectives in
our students and we achieve this through integrating
our domestic students with our thriving community of international students. All of our students experience rich learning, excellent facilities and visionary technology such as our digitally interactive learning spaces that encourage rich engagement and collaboration.

We encourage you to book a personalised tour of our campus so that you can discover what's so special about Saint Stephen's College.
