About our school

Mt Maria College Petrie is a Catholic coeducational college for students in Years 7 – 12 in the Marist Tradition. There are approximately 540 students enrolled.

Nestled on four hectares of gardens in the education precinct made up of the University of the Sunshine Coast and Our Lady of the Way Catholic Primary School, the campus provides a beautiful bushland backdrop for teaching and learning.

Our aspirational mantra of ‘High Expectations, Resilience and Perseverance’ is a personal excellence standard that invites students to do their best in a safe, supported and caring environment.

All aspects of College life are driven by the Marist characteristics 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 to a deeper understanding of themselves, their purpose and their place in the world.

The College offers a flexible and engaging curriculum to meet the needs of all students for those with tertiary aspirations to those with specific educational needs. Expert teaching staff deliver broad range of programs and cocurricular activities.

Our aim is that each student’s potential is ignited and nurtured so they can be successful at school and in life beyond school.
