The College is committed to delivering dynamic teaching and learning experiences which will equip our students for the demands of further education and employment into the future. The focus of our curriculum is based on our core values: Love of God, Love of Learning, Hospitality, Stewardship and Peace.
St Mary Star of the Sea College is an authorized IB school for the Middle Years Programme. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education - that we believe is important for our students.
