It’s charism is a dual focus combining the spiritual and educational philosophies of the Catholic Church’s Carmelite (St Teresa of Avila) and Marist (St Marcellin Champagnat) traditions. 

The College moved to its present site in 2005 and in four years has completed its major building projects. The final stage of building will be officially opened in September 2010.
