Gleeson College is a faith-filled community, providing our students and staff the opportunity to discover, develop and use their God-given talents in the service of others. We aim to foster and encourage all students to strive to be their best academically, socially and as a person for the world.
Our mission is to always be a College of quality learning and quality teaching. We aim to work in close partnership with our students and parents, in order to achieve success for all. Pursuit of excellence is a core value of Gleeson College, and is demonstrated by our goal of continuous improvement throughout an evidenced-based approach to 21st Century education.
The Gleeson College motto, With One Heart, is the translation of Archbishop Gleeson's motto 'Cor Unum'. In our Patron's first letter to the College, he said "I leave you with this hope of mine: that Gleeson College will always be of 'One Heart' in every aspect of its life and mission." Our community is therefore founded on the commitment of Archbishop James Gleeson to the charism of the heart and our desire to learn, grow and share 'With One Heart'.
At Gleeson College, all members of our community aim to fulfil the College's Vision through our ten core values known collectively as the Gleeson 10 and our staff commit to working together through the Gleeson Staff 5. We believe that excellent pastoral care allows students to thrive and feel a sense of belonging and is an important precursor to effective learning.
