St Virgil’s College is one of Tasmania’s oldest and most respected boys’ Colleges. Founded in 1911 by the Christian Brothers, St Virgil’s is committed to honouring the College’s rich history and traditions whilst reinforcing the key tenets of a Catholic boys’ school in the Edmund Rice tradition. The St Virgil’s Junior School campus is on a city site adjacent to St Mary’s College and St Mary’s Catholic Cathedral, whilst the secondary campus is located 17 kilometres north of the city at Austins Ferry.
St Virgil’s caters for boys from Grade 3 to 10 and offers a high quality, engaging and contemporary education for more than 750 boys aged from 8 to 16. The College understands boys and helps shape their journey to becoming good men of faith, community, justice and respect through academic endeavour and participation in the arts, community service, environmental action, sporting pursuits and outdoor adventures.
At St Virgil’s College our motto “by deeds, not words” challenges all members of the College community never to settle for mere words when there is good we can do.
