 Philosophy

Seton College is situated on Cavendish Road, Mt Gravatt East. It is a small Catholic Co-Educational College with a maximum enrolment of 335 students.

It is ideally suited for students of all abilities. The curriculum is similar to those offered in any regular High School. However the College has a special focus in that it provides opportunities for students who have experienced difficulties with their schoolwork in earlier years. The College motto - "Sursum Corda" (Lift up your Hearts) challenges each member of this community to be a person of hope. In this spirit of optimism and through a concern for each individual student, it is hoped that students will develop the necessary skills and knowledge to proudly take their place in society.

Many students have been able to realize their potential at Seton College. They exit from the College confidently able to pursue further education  or to enter the workplace with all the skills to become willing, capable and successful workers.

Our mission is encapsulated in the following sayings which we present to the students. These sayings present challenges for each student to develop in their character as well as their learning.

  • Everyone has the right to have a happy day
  • Each day is a new day
  • Look good, feel good
  • Work to achieve
  • Class time is serious time
  • Do your best, whatever your best might be
  • Each person has a different best
  • Everyone has the right to learn
  • Each person is a child of God
  • Look for the face of Jesus in everyone we meet, look for the face of Jesus in everyone we meet.
