About Us

The Marianist Order established St.Paul’s College in the 1960s. Inspired by the vision of Blessed William Chaminade, the College flourished according to the vision, that through education, students would discover their part in God’s family.

Forty years on, in consultation with the community, Emmanuel College was established comprising the St.Paul’s all-boys campus and the co-educational Notre Dame Campus at Point Cook. At Emmanuel College, students are encouraged and supported to achieve their personal best.

Through quality educational experiences and the collaboration and commitment of staff, our students are given the opportunity to unlock their potential. Students in Year 7 and 8 engage in a comprehensive program.

From Year 9, students have the opportunity to select elective subjects that best meet their interests and learning preferences. In Years 11 and 12, students can select a VCE program which may include Vocational and Educational Training subjects and VCAL.

The Catholic education of young people at Emmanuel College is a partnership with parents based on four pillars of learning: to know, to do, to live together, to be in Christ.

Our Curriculum

At Emmanuel College, the learning of all students occurs in a rich ICT environment within the AusVELS, VCE, VET and VCAL programs. Curriculum planning and professional learning concentrate on providing deep learning that engages students and focusses on improved learning outcomes for all.

At Years 7-10, students study English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, The Arts, Health and Physical Education, Languages other than English (Italian and Japanese) and Technology (ICT, Design and Systems). Personal Learning, Communication, Interpersonal Learning and Thinking are addressed within the Domain areas. At Years 7 and 8, a common curriculum is designed to develop a broad knowledge and skill base. From Year 9, an elective program gives students progressively more choices in their subject selections.

A feature of our Years 7, 8 and 9 curriculum is Project Based Learning. Students investigate real world problems within the AusVELS curriculum framework. Our membership of the NewTech Network of schools (USA) supports us in our endeavour to ensure that students are provided with opportunities to develop the skills of collaboration, teamwork, communication, presenting their findings to a real audience and using ICTs in collaborative, creative and responsible ways.

Student Leadership

Student leadership plays an important part in ensuring students have a voice. The Student Leadership Group (SLG) is made up of representatives from every year level and House. The SLG conducts regular meetings and provides feedback to the College Leadership Team on issues that directly concern the student body.

The student leaders are assigned to academic, relationships or environment portfolios. Additional leaders are appointed in the Performing Arts, Social Justice and Sporting areas.

Student leaders are involved in programs including running study groups, exam revision, social skill development and assemblies, and in conducting environment campaigns. Student representatives also serve on the College Board. The College student leaders act as role models. They inspire others to be the best that they can be and to pursue their personal best.
