The Organisation
Since its establishment in 1979 St John’s College Preston (SJC) has been a leading bilingual, independent, coeducational P-12 school founded on Christian (Greek Orthodox) values.
SJC is looking to continue it’s progress towards providing students of all backgrounds and faiths access to a unique educational experience encompassing the latest in educational techniques but fortified with Christian (Orthodox) values and Greek ‘Filotimo’.  Students are developed as independent, critical thinkers through an education experience based on quality research, professional practice and world leading methodologies. Filotimo is a greek noun that is almost impossible to translate sufficiently as it describes a complex array of virtues.  The combination of academic pursuits, sense of community and family values makes SJC a unique place to learn and grow.  The next phase for St John’s College is an exciting era following the recent appointment of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia.
