Principal's Welcome

St Virgil’s College is one of Tasmania’s oldest and most respected boys’ Colleges. Founded in 1911 by the Christian Brothers, St Virgil's College in 2011 celebrated its Centenary with a year filled with events and activities that commemorated the College's rich history and traditions whilst reinforcing the key tenets of a Catholic boys school in the Edmund Rice tradition. From 2024 St Virgil’s will cater for boys from Kindergarten to Year 12 across its two campuses in Hobart (Kindergarten-Year 6) and Austins Ferry (Year 7-12*). We will then offer a high quality, engaging and contemporary education for more than 1 000 boys aged from 4 to 18. 

We understand boys and help shape their journey to becoming good men of faith, community, justice and respect through academic endeavour and participation in the arts, community service, environmental action, sporting pursuits and outdoor adventures. At St Virgil’s College our motto 'by deeds, not words' challenges all members of the College community never to settle for mere words when there is good we can do. We encourage you to visit our school and witness first hand the exciting opportunities available to boys at St Virgil's College.
