Fully Independent | Pre-Primary to Matric | Small Classes


St Joseph’s Marist College is a multicultural, fully co-ed school that extends from Pre-school to Matric. In addition to mainstream classes, the College also offers Montessori classes from Pre-Primary to Grade 6.   

The College’s beautiful buildings and grounds mirror its harmonious character, as well as the family atmosphere it exudes from the moment you step through its gates.

In the Marist tradition of its founder, St Marcellin Champagnat, St Joseph’s provides an education that is academic, spiritual and morally formative in nature, and where each child is given the opportunity to be the very best he/she can be. Creative and critical thinking underpins all learning activities, and pupils are encouraged to develop beyond the curriculum. From the classroom to the sports field; from the concert hall to the chapel, St Joseph’s Marist College shows that learning can be real, relevant and fun!
