Our School St Catherine's School St Catherine's School

One of Australia's Finest Schools: Since 1896

St Catherine's School offers an education characterised by depth, diversity and contemporary thinking.

As a one-campus day and boarding school, we are a vibrant, close-knit community where students, teachers and parents share in the process of learning.

Our smaller size has many advantages for students, particularly the way in which each girl can be known and valued.

We provide a balanced academic program within a sound moral and ethical environment, giving our students every opportunity to achieve their own excellence of endeavour, through an exciting and progressive curriculum which encourages flexibility and innovation.

All students are valued and encouraged to reach their full potential as independent learners who respond to challenge and change.

Taking advantage of new technology, all members of the School community connect with each other to maximise learning inside and outside the classroom.

As a School which recognises the diversity of learning styles and needs, our students' interests are the focus as we construct new educational programs and assessments.

Our teachers, mindful of these many different ways in which students learn, search for innovative ways to create engaging and appropriately-complex classroom activities.

For example, our Year 11 Science students recently partnered with Victorian University to develop iTed, a teddy bear that helps children with profound learning disabilities and autism to communicate
