Founded in 1994 by the Archdiocese of Hobart in co-operation with the Christian Brothers, the Dominican Sisters, the Salesians of Don Bosco, the Sisters of Charity and the Sisters of Saint Joseph, our College welcomed its first students in 1995. Today, it is a proud member of the Tasmanian Catholic Church and a leading participant in the Tasmanian education community.
The College motto, Christ, Our Light, has, over the past 23 years, pointed thousands of students to Jesus, the light of the world. As a Catholic school, our major aim is to nurture, protect and pass on a faith in Jesus Christ as saviour. We welcome all who come through our doors into our community of faith.
Guilford Young College has a reputation for dynamism, educational excellence and outstanding pastoral care and our facilities for students on both Campuses are outstanding. We ensure that our teaching, our support for students, our environment and every aspect of our College operation meet the highest standards.
There is a very extensive offering of co-curricular activities and all students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the learning and growth opportunities available in sport, cultural, leadership and spiritual pursuits.
Guilford Young College both supports and nurtures students, helping them to develop a personal ethical framework that includes self-confidence and self-knowledge as well as knowledge of the world in which they live and their place in it. One of our many joys is working with vibrant and highly motivated young adults, helping them reach their full potential and opening the door of opportunity for all.
On behalf of all staff and students, I welcome you to our website and trust that it provides you with both the information you seek and a glimpse of who we are.
