Mamarapha College was established for Indigenous people of Australia to find a closer walk with God, to study His Word and to learn how to reach out to others with wisdom and in the power of His Spirit.

MAMARAPHA’S MISSION is to equip each student with skills to discover and experience God’s grace and healing in their own lives while developing abilities to benefit others.

The college is located in Karragullen, Western Australia (WA). It is a part of the Seventh-day Adventist education system and is a Registered Training Organization (RTO) with the Training and Accreditation Council (TAC) of Western Australia. A college costs money to operate – to pay for teacher’s wages, textbooks, workbooks, electricity, heating, library books, computers, office expenses, etc. so fees are charged to students to help cover some of the costs. Students may apply for ABSTUDY entitlements. College staff will help wherever possible and initial applications made through the College will normally be processed faster and with less complications. However, the responsibility lies with each student to make the applications. ABSTUDY will normally cover travel to and from the training centre, an incidentals payment to cover expenses such as books, stationary etc. Some may also qualify for a living allowance while on full time study to help with personal living costs.
