Nazareth College is a Catholic Co-educational College situated in the Melbourne suburb of Noble Park North. Established in 1986, the College attracts students locally and internationally and has a sound reputation for safety, academic excellence and student wellbeing. The College understands significant adjustments are required for students moving to another country for high school education. Mindful of this, Nazareth College endeavours to make this adjustment to life in Australia as easy as possible.

 Pastoral services available to our students include school chaplains, counsellors, a school nurse and careers advice and support. The Homeroom system and Pastoral Program ensure quality care for our students.

Our International Program attracts students from across Asia and Europe

The College offers many extra-curricular choices for students such as excursions, Performing Arts, Drama Club and private instrumental tuition.
