Welcome to Assumption College
Welcome to Assumption College, Warwick. As a vibrant, and distinctively Catholic, learning community, it can trace its origins back as far back as the 1870s. Assumption College enlivens the charisms of Catherine McAuley, through the Sisters of Mercy; Edmund Rice, through the Christian Brothers; and Mary of the Assumption, as expressed through our interconnectedness to our Parish. The rich heritage which is provided by these charisms allows Assumption College to thrive within its motto of “Truth and Love”.
