Vision, Mission and College Values


St Paul’s Catholic College Manly is committed to developing young men who are respectful of their faith, flexible, innovative and well-rounded decision makers prepared to take their place in a changing world.


Catholic schools in the Diocese of Broken Bay exist to educate and form young people in Catholic discipleship, offering them experiences of following Jesus as members of the Catholic community.

The mission of St Paul’s Catholic College Manly is to educate the hearts and minds of the young providing excellent academic education in the Catholic tradition of Edmund Rice and St Paul’s charism to inform, encourage and develop their full potential as young men in a contemporary world.  We strive to establish the values of respect, responsibility, results and reverence in all that we do.


Respect – students at St Paul’s strive in their everyday lives to enhance their ability to accept differences in each other and to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ “Do unto others what you want them to do to you”.  A good name is more desirable than great wealth, respect is better than silver or gold. (Proverbs 22:1)

Responsibility – as Disciples of Christ we have a responsibility to promote justice and develop skills of leadership and teamwork in our students making them accountable for one’s actions. You are responsible for your actions no matter what anybody else does.

Results – St Paul’s is committed to challenging students to achieve their potential and maximise their well being throughout all areas of the school.  I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.

Reverence – we at St Paul’s are humble in the acknowledgement and respect of God whilst being actively engaged in our responsibility of being disciples of Jesus.  Submit to one another out of reverence to God.  (Ephesians 5:21)
