St Joseph’s College, Hunters Hill, is one of Australia’s leading secondary schools for boys.
Founded by the Marist Brothers in 1881, Joeys is renowned for its outstanding academic, cultural and sporting achievements, its unique family spirit and links to the local and international community and rural Australia.
The college offers a broad education that draws faith, culture and life into harmony. It provides boys with the opportunity and support to strive for academic excellence and achieve their full potential in all they do. St Joseph’s endeavours to instil in boys both the capability and the desire to make a valuable contribution to the world and students are regularly involved in a range of social justice initiatives within their local communities and internationally. The college motto, In Meliora Contende – Strive for Better Things, is at the heart of the unique Joeys experience.
SJC Foundation was established in 1989 by a small group of committed Old Boys who sought to formalise the rich tradition of philanthropy that had underpinned the College since its foundation in 1881 and ensure tax-deductible status for most gifts. A growing group of Foundation members and donors share the founders’ determination to protect the ability of the College to fulfil its mission of excellence in education.
A focus for SJC Foundation is the Boys from the Bush bursary fund. From its earliest days, the education of boys from rural and remote areas of Australia has been at the core of St Joseph’s College. The Boys from the Bush bursary fund is committed to ensuring students from rural families have an opportunity to attend St Joseph’s and continue to enrich the College population.
