St Aloysius’ College is a Jesuit-owned school whereby the Jesuit Order is the proprietor of the school, and hence has the legal and leadership responsibility for it. In 1992 the Superior General of the Society of Jesus directed that the governance of all schools in the Australian Province should be assisted by a Council developed from within the College Community and its friends. The direction and policy formation for each Jesuit-owned school has been delegated, in the first instance, to the Provincial’s Delegate for Education and, through the Delegate, to the College Council. Councils have delegated responsibility for the governance of the College, within established Province policies.

The Principal, as Head of College, is responsible for the management, good order and quality of performance of the College, as well as the educational and pastoral welfare of the students and staff. He is assisted by a Jesuit Rector who is responsible for the spiritual and religious health of the College community and all such programs to nourish its development. The Deputy Principal (Senior School) and the Head of Junior School have delegated responsibility from the Principal for the day-to-day running of their respective campuses. 

The College Executive is comprised of the Principal, the Rector, Deputy Principal (Senior School), Head of Junior School, the Director of Finance, Director of Curriculum, Director of Curriculum Years 7-9, Deputy Head of Junior School, Director of Pastoral Care and Director of Co-Curriculum. The Principal and the Rector meet regularly with the College Executive to consult, seek advice and formulate administrative and leadership decisions that impact on the smooth running of the College and its strategic direction.
