Marian College is a Year 7 to 12 Catholic co-educational college with a proud 125-year history of serving the parishes of Ararat, Stawell and Beaufort.
The College was established by the Brigidine Sisters and they still own and operate the College and have a presence on staff and through the Stewardship Council. As a community we are very proud of our school, its Brigidine identity and of the Brigidine ethos developed so strongly over the years.
Marian College aims at developing the whole child – academically, physically, socially and spiritually. We emphasise belonging to a community in which all the members feel welcome, safe and respected. The College is a progressive leader in the pastoral care of our students, with the full introduction of the TSI Program throughout Years 7-12 in 2009. Every Marian College student is placed with a teacher (their TSI Teacher) who will have a crucial role in guiding them through the next 6 years of secondary schooling, both academically and socially. The TSI Teacher also plays a vital role in developing strong links with the parents of their students to ensure that any concerns or issues are dealt with quickly and with great care. The TSI Teacher becomes an advocate and role model in the lives of the students in their group.
We encourage people to come and visit our school. In doing so, you will find a college that warmly celebrates the many and varied achievements of its students, a college that is very proud of its heritage, and a school that is committed to ongoing excellence and improvement in learning and teaching.
