School’s Comments:

Institution: As the only Catholic liberal arts college in Australia, Campion goes to the core of education, faith and human flourishing. Located in western Sydney, Campion offers a uniquely integrated and fully accredited Bachelor of Arts in the liberal arts. 90% of our teaching staff have a Ph.D. in their field, and our small class sizes provide the ideal environment for students of all abilities to thrive. Through the study of history, literature, philosophy and theology, Campion students are taught to think critically, argue rationally and develop the creative, analytical and research skills that are important in any career. 

While many people view a university education as mere job training, Campion focuses on the formation of the entire person: spiritual, intellectual, social and vocational. 

We have a lively, close-knit and faith-filled college community, with numerous social, sporting and chaplaincy societies/activities to aid personal development and faith enrichment. 

Campion is grounded in the Catholic faith and exercises faithfulness to the teachings of the Church, helping students to live out their faith in all areas of life. 

On-campus accommodation is segregated, male and female, across all dorms and residences. Individuals are not permitted to enter rooms of the opposite sex, and access to living spaces is limited. Each residential area is assigned a residential tutor, a senior student of the college who plans social activities and assists students with settling into college life. 

All residential tutors are under the direct supervision of the senior residential tutor, who is a member of staff.

The Collegium

The Collegium is an independent institution of higher learning that pledges full fidelity to the unchanging Magisterium of the Catholic Church. Faculty and staff are practicing Catholics who are fully supportive of the Collegium’s mission and have signed the Oath Against Modernism.

Holy Spirit College

Holy Spirit seeks to educate and to form students who, as leaders in professional and civic life, will live by the highest intellectual and ethical standards. In service of this goal, Holy Spirit endeavors to create an environment in which integrated learning is a shared responsibility. Shared responsibility for the life and governance of the College should lead all its members to make the best of their own talents, to work together, to be sensitive to one another, to serve others, and to seek justice within and beyond the Holy Spirit community.
