About our school

Established in 1987, Mt Maria College Petrie is a small Catholic coeducational college for students in Years 7 – 12 in the Marist Tradition. Nestled on four hectares of gardens and bushland and located in the education precinct of the University of the Sunshine Coast and Our Lady of the Way Catholic Primary School, the campus provides a beautiful backdrop for teaching and learning. All aspects of College life are characterised by the Marist principles of presence, simplicity, love of work, family spirit and in the way of Mary. These principles provide a meaningful lens to connect the young people in our care to a deeper understanding of themselves, their purpose and their place in the world. 

Central to our existence is a genuine concern for each student’s academic, spiritual, physical and personal development. Personal formation and building confidence and self-esteem in every student is paramount. Our aspirational mantra of ‘High Expectations, Resilience and Perseverance’ is a personal excellence standard and an invitation for students to do their best learning in our safe, supported and caring environment. The College offers a flexible and engaging curriculum to meet the needs of all students ranging from those with tertiary aspirations to those with specific educational needs. A broad range of offerings in subjects, courses and cocurricular activities is delivered by our expert teaching staff. As we are small enough that each student is known as an individual, our aim is that their potential is ignited and nurtured so they can be successful at school, and in life beyond school.
