Stella graduates leave school prepared to meet the demands and challenges of the 21st Century.
Stella Maris College belongs to the community of ten schools across Australia called Good Samaritan Education (GSE). Established in 2011 by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan, the mission of Good Samaritan Education is to sustain and nurture our Catholic schools as Good Samaritan Benedictine communities of learning. As a school of Good Samaritan Education, Stella Maris College continues to be guided by the Good Samaritan Philosophy of Education and shaped by its commitment to the values of our spiritual tradition, including stewardship, mutuality, prayer, hospitality, humility, discernment, justice and peace. Strong links with the Sisters are valued and find particular expression in the ongoing support of the schools for the Sisters’ ministries and works. The College is committed to developing students who will engage with today’s world as grounded, hope-filled young people who are equipped to lead wisely, to listen deeply and to treat their neighbour and their environment with justice, love and the compassion of Christ.
Stella Maris College is incorporated and governed locally by a Board of Directors which are accountable through the Company Members to GSE.
