Catholic Faith

Our Catholic Faith

Padua College is a Catholic school community that work in partnership with the Catholic Parishes and Primary Schools on the Mornington Peninsula to provide a holistic education based on the life and teachings of Jesus and the collective wisdom of the Church.

At Padua College, we believe that education is more than knowledge and skills, as important as these are for our students. By aspiring to a holistic education, we encourage students to grow emotionally so that they know themselves and how they relate to others, to grow morally so that they make good decisions in their lives, and to grow spiritually so that they find a deeper meaning in what they do.

As a Catholic school we present Jesus as the ultimate role model to follow for all students, and for students who are searching for a deeper spiritual connection in their lives, we encourage a more personal encounter with God through the person of Jesus.
