About St John’s

Welcome to St John’s Anglican College

St John’s is a Kindergarten to Year 12 co-educational Christian school founded in 1994 and located in the leafy surrounds of Forest Lake, Brisbane. With 1200 students, St John’s is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School offering a joyful and innovative learning experience within an Anglican framework.

For parents searching for the right school for their child, we understand there are many important factors which contribute to your decision. The key features of our College which are rated favourable by our community are:

Small School, Big Opportunities

St John’s is the ideal size where students have access to an abundance of learning opportunities, facilities, experienced educators but they are not lost in the crowd. We recognise and value every student as an individual with an understanding that their personality, contribution and unique sense of perspective brings a richness to our school community.


St John’s students are experiencing the real world, benefiting from both male and female mentors and understanding the impact both genders create when interacting together. So much is gained from having our students learn side-by-side, working collaboratively and respectfully, exchanging ideas and succeeding together.

Balanced Education

St John’s prides itself on the breadth and quality of its extra and co-curricular programs in the performing arts and sporting arenas. Education isn’t just about teaching content in the classroom but about preparing young minds for the challenges of the real world.

Inclusive Community

Everyone is responsible for upholding our College values and striving to achieve a respectful, inclusive and joyful College community. Creating a positive culture and ensuring that every one of our students has positive individual wellbeing is something we take very seriously at St John’s.

One College

We offer a seamless education for your child from Kindergarten to Year 12. While located across two beautifully maintained campuses minutes apart and connected by St John’s own shuttle buses, we are One College.

Character Development

St John’s is an inclusive Christian school founded on the Anglican tradition which values acceptance of diversity, inclusiveness and equity within its community. We inspire lifelong learning by living and being guided by faith in God, our community and our self.
