Truth and Love
Under the guidance of Mary, Our Lady of the Assumption, and in the tradition of Catherine McAuley and Edmund Rice, we are a Catholic learning community sustained and empowered by witness to the Gospel message of truth and love.

The purpose of Catholic education is to liberate all by living the Gospel truth of love. In developing the pastoral academic wellbeing of our students, we embrace four

As Assumption College we follow the Marian traditions of the Church honouring Mary as mother of Jesus and mother to the Church. Our Lady brings the truth of Christ to us and is a model for love; to open our heart to the word of God, to teach of generosity, compassion, wisdom and justice as Jesus did.
