Welcome to the Antonine College Community, a Maronite Catholic co-educational Foundation - Year 12 school in Melbourne, Victoria.

Antonine College was the realisation of a dream for the Antonine Sisters, who came from Lebanon in the 1980s to minister to the Christian Lebanese and Maronite community.

Our spirituality comes from both the rich heritage of Saint Anthony the Great, founder of religious life, and from the heritage of the Maronite Church, based on the spiritual life of Saint Maroun.

This profound double heritage is based on a life of:

  • Contemplation and prayer
  • Community and fraternal commitment
  • Apostolic and missionary activity

In addition we can claim the influence of the special spirituality of Mother Isabelle Khoury, who created the apostolic dimension of the congregation. Her spirituality is characterised by:

  • Simplicity of life
  • Evangelical poverty
  • Family spirit

Education for us is a major part of our mission. This mission plays a very important role in the life of the sisters. Our aim is to work alongside the families, guiding them and helping them grow as good Christians.

We are committed to supporting and maintaining Gospel and family values. We work in partnership with families to develop fidelity to religious values and the spreading of God's word.

Students at Antonine College enjoy a safe and welcoming learning environment. As a Catholic College we are ever mindful of educating the whole person in an environment where the Gospel Values are reflected in our daily activities. The college works to provide excellent educational programs.

Antonine College is blessed with a dedicated, caring and highly qualified staff who has created a nurturing Christian environment that epitomises the spirit of the Gospels and promotes a climate of courtesy, self reliance and respect for all individuals.

We are committed to supporting students in both the faith and academic dimensions of their development and we welcome all those who wish to become members of this vibrant Catholic co-educational learning community.
