A warm welcome to Ave Maria College; a Catholic College for young women built on the Franciscan values of truth, love and peace.

An Ave Maria College student can be recognised as a young woman who brings to her life and her relationships confidence, courage and compassion and a generosity of spirit to all. 

She brings to her studies a commitment to excellence and an ability to work both independently and collaboratively in the pursuit of learning success.  A young woman at Ave Maria College recognises that all goodness and beauty is a gift given by our Creator and is for all. Read More >
