Australia's first joint Anglican and Catholic College
St Columba College, located in the Northern Suburbs of Adelaide, is the first joint venture, coeducational school in Australia. It was established in 1996 as an ecumenical initiative of Archbishops, Ian George and Leonard Faulkner, at that time the Anglican and Catholic Archbishops of Adelaide.
St Columba College is an R-12 co-educational Anglican and Catholic school, renowned for our commitment to high standards in all areas of school life.
St Columba takes pride in its students' achievements in academic programs and vocational education and training. We are committed to working in partnership with parents to help students be successful and prepare them for life after school. Student wellbeing is of the highest priority to ensure they have a sense of belonging. We deliver an engaging, academically challenging and socially relevant framework that equips our students for the future.
The essence of College life is summed up in our vision statement:
St Columba College seeks to inspire in our students a relationship with God, a love of learning and a passion for life.
To support this the College is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, excellent staff and modern resources. Our students' pride in their College is nurtured by a sense of belonging through pastoral care and specialised inclusive education support. Everything the College does emanates from our Christian heritage and Anglican and Catholic traditions. We strive to ensure our students are both successful and happy.
