Our school’s pedagogy reflects the overarching principles and approach to learning outlined in the Sydney Catholic Schools’ Statement on Authentic Learning. By connecting to the real world of students’ lives, authentic learning enables students to become lifelong learners who contribute to society and the wider world as active and discerning citizens. Authentic learning is central to our work as Catholic educators because it promotes the continual growth and wellbeing of the whole person — spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.

Marist College Eastwood ClassroomsBased on our principle that we teach students rather than subjects, the college offers a broad curriculum aimed at meeting each student’s learning needs.

Our rigorous, challenging and extensive curriculum includes both academic and vocational streams.  It is augmented by an enrichment program for gifted students and a learning support unit which assist students to fully realise their potential.

The college’s wide ranging curriculum ensures that each student has the opportunity to make appropriate subject choices, helping him set realistic, achievable and challenging goals.  The college gives students the opportunity to experience success in their studies, provide the basis for success in their lives beyond school, and instill in each student a lifelong love of learning.
