Thank you for viewing our College website and taking the time to familiarize yourself with what St Mark’s Coptic Orthodox College has to offer. Currently in its twenty-second year of operation, this wonderful school has developed and grown in that short time to be one of the schools of choice within the South-West Sydney region.
Our students are our hope for the future and St Mark’s exists to provide the best possible springboard for your child’s future, working in partnership with you in maximising their opportunities and potential.
Saint Mark’s is a leading co-educational K-12 independent School in the Sydney South-West region gaining high Higher School Certificate Results. As each HSC cohort is unique, State rankings do fluctuate with the College achieving positions within the Top 50, Top 100 and Top 200 high schools in NSW continuously since undertaking its first HSC cohort in 1998. Aside from HSC rankings though, the true scale of our student annual achievement is indicated from Tertiary Entrances, on average with 98% of each cohort attaining university entrance in courses of their choice (i.e. first choices).
Saint Mark’s is a vibrant Christian community based school in the Coptic Orthodox tradition. It enjoys a secure, dynamic and exciting learning environment with a strong academic focus that is not only supported by our parent population, but more importantly by the students themselves. This encourages our students to enthusiastically pursue excellence, develop their skills and talents in all dimensions.
We believe that learning is lifelong and that students learn best in association with their teachers where they feel secure and valued. Hence teachers help our students to develop in all areas of life with values affirmed such as integrity, friendship, self discipline, leadership skills, and multicultural understanding to enable them to serve effectively as global citizens anywhere.
