Our motto Try Persevere Achieve forms the basis of the idea that each student is provided with the opportunity at Staughton College to try, develop and grow intellectually, physically and emotionally over their time at the school.
We encourage perseverance and see it as the pathway to achievement.
Our year 7 – 12, coeducational, single-campus school provides a friendly environment where boys and girls of all ages can learn to live and work together.
We value the sense of community among teachers and students alike. Older students and student leaders provide valuable role models for the younger and, in turn, they learn about the responsibilities of adulthood and the skills necessary to contribute positively to the community and the work place. All learn about socially responsible and respectful behaviour, about courtesy, about the way we should treat each other and about accepting responsibility for one's actions. Our Rights and responsibilities are based on respect, learn and safety.
The College provides structures to support a transition from Primary school including core rooms and core teachers. Our experience is that it doesn't take long before students feel confident and comfortable at school. This is a very important first step.
We also have high expectations of our students' learning. Around those high expectations, we build structure, teaching practice, organisation and procedures. We expect students to take on the challenge of continuously improving upon their learning and participating in the broad range of programs and extra-curricular activities on offer. This is supported by continuous evaluation and improvement of subjects, courses of study, and the way in which teaching and learning occurs. The academic achievements of our students are exemplified by their VCE results, VCAL completion and the tertiary, further education and training pathways they take up after graduation.

In 1982 another junior campus at North Keilor was opened as was the campus at Sydenham. At the end of 1984, Sister Helen Reed completed her term as Principal.
