Ave Maria College – Catholic College for Young Women
Ave Maria seeks to educate each young woman so that she develops the courage to excel, the confidence to thrive and the compassion to love. With an enrolment of approximately 800 students, Ave Maria College is large enough to offer a good range of VCE studies, catering for a diversity of student interests, yet small enough for each young woman to be known as an individual.

To enhance learning, the emphasis of the wellbeing plan is to address the issues, challenges, decisions and responsibilities that our students face on a daily basis and to empower all our girls to make the right choices. The College strives to live out the teachings and values of Jesus Christ. It is a community based on love, justice, compassion and integrity.
