As a Catholic School, our Catholic faith underpins all our actions. St Paul's College promotes a learning community where all aspects of education are nourished. We strongly value the notion of partnership in education, encouraging families to actively work with the school to meet every child's needs.

Catholic secondary schools in the Diocese of Lismore use the following order of priority for enrolment:

  1. Children of families of Lismore Diocesan Catholic primary schools within the parish/region (nominally, this enrolment would have been for a minimum four-year period). Also, children of Catholic families who have not attended a Catholic primary school are active within the parish.
  2. Children of families who currently have or have had siblings within the school (including children of employees of the Diocese of Lismore).
  3. Children of families transferring from another Catholic school, first from within the Diocese of Lismore and then from other Catholic dioceses.
  4. Children of Catholic families within the parish/region enrolled in a non-Catholic school.
  5. Children that are recommended for consideration by the Parish Priest.
  6. Children of other-than-Catholic families attend other schools and are open to and supportive of the spiritual and religious possibilities offered by a Catholic school.

Catholic secondary schools in the Diocese of Lismore use an order of priority for enrolments. See our Enrolment Policy and Fees for more information.
