MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Saint Stephen’s College is a co-educational, Preparatory to Year 12 independent school at the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.
Students at Saint Stephen’s College enjoy impressive success in all areas of academics, sporting and cultural pursuits, but it is the ‘spirit’ of our community that truly sets us apart from other schools. We strive to develop students who are full of character, who are empowered to reach their full potential, and who live their lives as responsible global and local citizens.
We value the development of global perspectives in
our students and we achieve this through integrating
our domestic students with our thriving community of international students. All of our students experience rich learning, excellent facilities and visionary technology such as our digitally interactive learning spaces that encourage rich engagement and collaboration.
We encourage you to book a personalised tour of our campus so that you can discover what's so special about Saint Stephen's College.

We have many years’ experience in providing excellence in education for international students from all over the world. We are proud to be one of the friendliest, safest and productive schools in Australia. Saint Stephen's College has a history of impressive academic achievements. Many of our international students have graduated with the highest possible tertiary entrance result and some have received university scholarships. A Saint Stephen's College education will offer you a very high standard of academic, sporting and cultural opportunities. Our international students make solid friendships, develop better language skills and experience the very best of Australian culture. I look forward to welcoming you to our thriving international community.
International students can participate in mainstream courses for a short, medium or long-term study duration. Students who are not English first language are personally supported and tutored by our Intensive English and English Second Language tutors. Modified programs are individually created in order to offer international students the language support that they require in order to reach their potential.
Saint Stephen's College mainstream courses offer students the flexibility to design a program that matches their interests and areas of excellence. Students can choose from a wide variety of subjects and study a full mainstream timetable.
Students entering in Preparatory to Year 4 do not need to sit an English proficiency exam and are integrated into the mainstream classroom straight away. Students entering after Year 4 must demonstrate a proficiency level in English before entering a full mainstream timetable.
International students who are English Second Language (ESL) receive personalised ESL tuition to help them meet their academic potential. Some students have the opportunity to study their native language – this makes their academic load more manageable.
Saint Stephen’s College Intensive English is a modified mainstream program that focusses on developing English proficiency to allow students a smooth transition into studying a full mainstream curriculum. Intensive English classes operate in Years 4 to 10. Saint Stephens’ College is unique in providing students the opportunity to integrate in some mainstream classes, excursions and events from the commencement of enrolment. Intensive English classes operate in small student numbers to offer individualised instruction and personalised tuition. Saint Stephen’s College Intensive English classes have an impressive record and reputation for providing students exceptional language support to maximise academic outcomes.
Mainstream students make many life-long friendships and develop global perspectives and cultural understanding.
