Welcome to St Patrick’s College, a Catholic secondary boarding school for boys located in Ballarat, Victoria. The College’s teachings are based upon the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the charism of Edmund Rice, founder of the Christian Brothers. This charism is reflected in the current practices of the College. From an initial intake of 35 students in 1893 the College has grown to be recognised as one of the premier Catholic day and boarding schools for boys in Australia, today catering for the educational needs of over 1420 boys.
