A College of Special Character

Our Mission Statement

 Verdon College is a Catholic learning community where  excellence is fostered and gospel values guide success.


School Motto

“Rely on God”

Verdon College is an integrated Catholic College. Our Special Catholic Character is also based on the  traditions of our founding orders the Marist brothers and Dominican sisters.  Our College values are  based on the combined values and traditions of these two orders. These values provide students and staff with the foundations to create a positive supportive learning community.


Because our community is based  on the Catholic faith it is an inclusive community. Many of our students come from a diverse range backgrounds and religious denominations.  All members are  able to positively participate in and contribute to our community  in meaningful ways.
