Our Faith Journey

Guided by the principles and insights of Ignatian spirituality, CathWest Innovation College is a ministry of the Catholic Church, walking with humility in the way of Jesus, serving all of God’s people.


Aspiring to educate the whole person, the college accompanies students to reflect and seek to fulfil their deepest desires, grow in competence, conscience, and compassion, develop generous and grateful hearts, and ultimately find God in all things.

A community of companions, CathWest Innovation College’s teaching, support staff endeavour to draw out the full potential of each student and come to realise that their passions and vocation are gifts to be developed. Not for self-satisfaction or self-gain, but rather, with the help of God, for the common good.
