Welcome to Marymede Catholic College! 


Inspired by our Catholic faith tradition, we are called to nourish, nurture, challenge and celebrate our diverse community in an adaptive and aspirational environment. 


Our vision is Inspired by Jesus and In the Way of Mary, for students to experience the fullness of life and aspire to grow, lead and serve. 


I am most grateful for the trust placed in me to be the Principal of the College. I believe really strongly in helping young people to be their best and to do this with the invitation for them to understand our Catholic tradition; one of hope and love. 


As a Catholic school we offer students the opportunity, In the Way of Mary, to listen, reflect, and respond to what Christ calls us to be today; humble, loving, strong and committed people of service; service to others, especially those most in need, and to creation. In all that we do, we strive to ensure that our students come to understand Jesus’ message and are inspired to use their gifts and talents to create a loving world. 


We are passionate about developing the best pathways for our young people and committed to ensuring that each of our students receives an education tailored to their needs and interests. We strive to provide a learning environment where young people can explore different ideas, expand their skills and knowledge, and discover opportunities for growth and development. 


Marymede Catholic College is a vibrant young school with outstanding facilities and vast opportunities. Our engaging and contemporary learning program is delivered in a dynamic, supportive and caring environment. Students are supported by fantastically committed teachers who strive to create a safe, happy, supportive and Christ centred learning culture. High standards are fostered at the College, where all students are suitably challenged and supported to achieve their very best. We stretch students’ talents. We help those who are vulnerable. 


We have a diverse co-curricular program that enhances student learning and provide opportunities to discover new talents, foster passions and aspire towards excellence. Discovery and participation in a range of sports is encouraged through our extensive facilities and programs. Vast opportunities exist to compete in inter-school sport competitions against other schools and at state and national levels. 


The students of the College are very proud of their school; they value the relationships they form with their teachers and friends and are blessed to have many great opportunities to come to know our loving God. Graduates of the College leave confident to lead and serve the world of today and tomorrow. 


Founded in 2006, Marymede is a coeducational Prep to Year 12 school with approximately 2230 students on its South Morang Campus alongside the Marymede Early Learning Centre, which offers 3 year old and 4 year old kindergarten. The College serves the parishes of St Francis of Assisi (Mill Park and South Morang) and Christ the Light (Doreen, Kinglake, Mernda and Whittlesea) and is governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS). 


Excitingly, the College is expanding the facilitation of its learning program through the introduction of an additional Campus in Doreen. The Doreen Campus will be next door to St Paul the Apostle Catholic Primary School. The Marymede Catholic College Early Learning Centre will open on its Doreen Campus in Term 2 2023, and the Year 7-12 campus will open in 2024 for our foundational cohort of Year 7s. 


At a time when educational choices are becoming increasingly important, we welcome your enquiry and invite you to visit us and experience our College first hand.
