Developing the 'Whole Child'

At Young Parents College we understand our young parents require a flexible, supportive environment that caters to their individual needs.

Staff at St Philip's Christian College Young Parents are dedicated to working alongside each student to draw out their God-given potential and equip them to succeed in their schooling. We provide a wide range of support to help our young parents to navigate parenting, education and life.

Young Parents College was birthed out of a desire to provide quality education and care to both teen parents and their children to ensure a successful schooling and parenting journey for both generations.

At Young Parents College it is our aim to ensure that young parents and their children are provided with the best opportunities for success for the Whole of Their Life.

We offer a full HSC program including VET options for students as their children engage in onsite early learning.

Young Parents College is a funded service offering inclusive, high-quality education, in a non-judgemental, safe and supportive environment.


  • Supporting pregnant and parenting teens to complete the Higher School Certificate in an engaging learning environment.

    “Through young eyes, together, we all stand as one to learn and grow”

    Through education, training and activities we seek to empower our young parents and to help them to gain skills for life, providing them the opportunity of generational change through education.
