Opened in 1915, St Laurence’s College is a Catholic boys’ day school located in South Brisbane, the central business district precinct of Brisbane, Queensland. With a rich and proud history of academic excellence and, sporting and cultural prowess, the school has grown to now educate over 1900 boys annually including international students from years 7 to 12.
Our College proudly offers a distinctive educational philosophy, with academic support and extension programs. A diverse range of subjects are offered that allow students to participate in learning across a number of faculties for tertiary entrance. An average of 21% of all OP eligible students achieve between an OP 1 and OP5. Over 95% of all graduating students exit the College with a Queensland Certificate of Education.
International students benefit from our English-As-An-Additional Language subject and the study of Chinese as a second language. All students are offered free subject tutoring support before and after school provided by our teachers and past international student scholars. All students benefit from our Creative Arts and Music programs, our excellent Sporting program and our Faith in Action initiatives.
Our College has a dedicated International Students Office to provide full time support to our international students with their studies, welfare, accommodation, Visa conditions and daily needs. On-call support is also provided to these students after hours.
