Mt Maria College Petrie is a Catholic Archdiocesan Co-educational Secondary College. It is located next to Our Lady of the Way school and Our Lady of the Way Church in Petrie. The College was established by Brisbane Catholic Education in 1987 and was originally named “Kolbe College” after Saint Maximilian Kolbe. One of the main strengths of the College is the continual provision of Inclusive Education to its clientele.
Central to our existence is the genuine concern for each student’s academic, spiritual and personal development. Promoting the Catholic faith, personal formation and building confidence and self-esteem are paramount within our College community. There is a strong sense of family atmosphere and a great support for our College Mission.
The College is nestled on four hectares of gardens and bush-land setting. Mt Maria College Petrie offers a flexible curriculum to meet the educational needs of all students ranging from those with tertiary aspirations to those with specific educational needs.
The College is open to all students and it is of particular interest to all those who would benefit by being in a small environment. A range of programs to assist students to reach their full potential is offered. This service is enhanced by comparatively small enrolment which currently is 510.
