St Charbel’s College
St Charbel’s College is an Independent Maronite Catholic Co-educational K-12 school administered by the Lebanese Maronite Order of Monks.
St Charbel’s College promotes a love of learning and the Gospel values of justice, peace, love, compassion, acceptance, generosity and service.
We see our students as unique individuals being shaped and informed, while incorporating our influence into their individuality. We hope that each student matures to a faith response which is freely chosen but committedly Maronite Catholic; to a personal interaction which is respectful and consistent, yet flexible, “to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly before God” (Micah).
We hope that the students develop the spirit of St Charbel, the spirit of determinedly opposing values foreign to Jesus Christ’s message. The spirit of concern for others, should, in different ways, characterise every student, every graduate, every teacher, every parent, and every member of the St Charbel’s College community.
The most essential feature of St Charbel’s College is the College’s Maronite identity. That is, St Charbel’s College belongs to the tradition and history of the Maronite Catholic Church; this lends many distinctive features to the school, features that are particular to Maronite culture. Therefore, in order to understand the culture of a Maronite school, it is necessary to highlight the uniqueness of the Maronite Catholic Church, and to discover Her distinguishing qualities.
