Whitefriars College is situated on the outskirts of Melbourne, a cosmopolitan city of 4 million people in the south-east corner of Australia. In the peace and tranquillity of 19 hectares of natural bushland, boys from Years 7 to 12 are educated in a caring and challenging atmosphere by the Carmelite Order and its staff.
The College enjoys a high reputation in both academic and business arenas. Old Collegians now live and work in many parts of the world, in careers which began in the caring, supportive and challenging classrooms of Whitefriars.
With a current student population of 1200 boys, Whitefriars offers a broad curriculum ensuring that we cater for the interests and talents of all our students. They are encouraged to achieve their best possible academic results and given every support to do so.
Guidance about entrance to University and careers is provided, along with regular reporting to parents. The majority of students proceed directly to tertiary education, and many continue on to post-graduate study.
“Belief in self is not enough, for no man is an island.
To become who you are meant to be, you must believe in a coherent and worthwhile set of values, and value those who teach you the certainty that you belong.”Mr Colin MacDonald – Solutions Specialist, Pronto Software Ltd (Class of 1979)
