Excellence in boys’ education in the Vincentian tradition.

COLLEGE OPEN DAY, Saturday 16 March 2019 or Book a tour...


The Vincentian Fathers and Brothers arrived from Ireland to take over St Charles Seminary and St Stanislaus’ College in 1889, the College having been in operation since 1867. The first Vincentian President was Fr James Byrne CM, who was principally involved in the Seminary and left the running of the College to the Vice President, Fr Patrick Dowling CM. Since the time of Fr Byrne and Fr Dowling, Vincentians have played an integral role in the life of Stannies. Generations of Old Boys have been inspired by the Vincentian Charism and identify its Vincentian character as one of the most precious attributes or features of the school.


Head of College Address

Dr. Anne Wenham

It has been my privilege to be Head of College since 2013. St Stanislaus College is the only Vincentian school in Australia, and having been founded in 1867, it is also the oldest Catholic Boys’ Boarding School in Australia.

St Stanislaus College celebrates 151 years of Catholic education in 2018. I look forward to welcoming all new members of the community as they become part of the proud history of this College and I welcome back all returning students and their families and wish them well for a wonderful year ahead.

‘Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think’ Albert Einstein

The consistency of outstanding HSC results for boys of all academic levels continues to be the hallmark of the education at St Stanislaus’ College. The most recent educational research points to a significant change in the skills required for employment by 2030, with the reduction in the need for workers to complete routine, manual tasks and an increase in the time workers spend on solving strategic problems and thinking creatively. As such, Stannies has embarked on a number of programs geared to developing enterprise skills such as problem solving, creativity, critical thinking, communication, digital and financial literacy which are transferable into many employment areas.
