Ave Maria College is a warm and welcoming Catholic College for young women, in the Franciscan tradition. We seek to educate each young woman such that she develops the courage to excel, the confidence to thrive and compassion to love. Our energies are at the service of the girls. It is our hope and our endeavour that in their time with us, each young woman will develop under the inspiration of the Franciscan way, a strong sense of self, an informed global outlook and a firm willingness to serve the world.
This will be inspired by her experience of Ave Maria College. Her faith and contemplation, her family and her education will be her lifelong gifts to the world. These same gifts will be her source of comfort and growth throughout life. Therefore, what a sacred and profound role we all have within the College in partnership with our faith communities and our families. In this work we are led and supported by a Franciscan model which “commits to justice, peace, the integrity of creation and to affirming the dignity of all peoples.” (Australian Province FMM, Mission Statement) Leading the learning of young women at Ave Maria College as Principal is a privilege.
