Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a holistic Catholic education for boys that inspires them to a life-long development of their faith. Informed by the spirit of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and grounded in Gospel values of justice, service, discernment, conscience and compassion, the College aims to produce young men who are cognisant of and responsive to global citizenship in a rapidly changing world.


Our Motto

Quantum Potes Tantum Aude
As much as you can do, so much dare to do

The motto may be translated to ‘dare to do, as much as you can’ or to ‘strive your hardest’. It takes up themes central to Jesuit teaching and stresses the traditions of Riverview and the qualities expected of every student who passes through its doors.




A commitment to equity for individuals less fortunate than ourselves


A commitment to selflessly work towards a better world for all


Being moved by reflection from a knowledge of facts to enacting a faith-filled understanding


Steadfastly holding to truth, based on that discernment


A commitment to dare to act with a faith that does justice
