Our Story

Carmel College, established in 1993, is a co-educational Catholic college with a student enrolment of over 1250.

All members of our school community are valued, respected and encouraged to maximise their opportunities of learning. Infused within the College’s learning environment is the welcoming nature of its members. This is a dominant characteristic of Carmel.

A commitment to developing lifelong learners imbued with a Catholic ethos is integral to the vision of Carmel College. The celebration of mission and faith at Carmel College is reflected in its meaningful retreat and liturgical programmes and its commitment to supporting the marginalised. The challenge for contemporary educators to embrace flexibility in its curriculum design, currency of pedagogy and engagem​ent for students is nestled within and com​plements the College’s approach.​

In living out the College motto “Let Your Light Shine," Carmel College actively promotes a wide range of learning and teaching pathway opportunities, a strong pastoral support system; active engagement in co-curricular programs - sports and arts; and numerous outreach opportunities.
