Discover Saint Stephen’s College
Saint Stephen’s College is a co-educational, Childcare to Year 12 independent school on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.
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.
A message from the Executive Director of International Education
Saint Stephen’s College recognises that we are all members of a greater global community, and as such, aim to develop the global awareness in all students and staff. Our policy is to foster the knowledge, skills and values that equip young people to involve themselves in human society, and the different environments in which people live.
We invite students from various countries, cultures, religions and nationalities to be part of our diverse student population. We encourage international students to join our College from Preparatory to Year 12.
The diversity in our College encourages all students to actively participate as a ‘world citizen’. Our learning environment relies heavily on co-operative learning and action, sharing responsibilities, critical thinking and communication.
We aim to create and manage a supportive College community through exceptional pastoral care, where individual needs are carefully considered and progress and development are continually monitored. It is our desire to provide all children with the foundations for achievement in all areas including social, emotional and behavioural wellbeing in the College environment, as well as for the world of tomorrow.
As the Executive Director of International Education, I am passionate about developing global perspectives within Saint Stephen’s College. I have travelled extensively throughout our ever-changing world and have personally experienced life as an international student. I aim to develop a community of learners who value all people, working together to develop character and inspire hope.
I look forward to working with you and your families as we embark on our shared journey as members of the Saint Stephen’s College family.
