“Today, it is with a great sense of pride I can communicate that St Catherine’s School is now ranked as the #1 girls’ school in Victoria. With a median Study Score of 37, and median ATAR of 92.1, our outstanding VCE results place St Catherine’s in the top four performing schools in Victoria.
The continued growth in our VCE results over the past four years are indicative of our exceptional teachers and rigorous educational programs. Three years ago, St Catherine’s commenced a partnership of professional learning for our teachers with the University of Queensland, to embed a Thinking Agenda for every girl, in every classroom.
Our outstanding VCE results in 2021, are testament to this targeted program and the exceptional academic care our teachers provide to every student, particularly during the challenges of the COVID pandemic over the past two years. ” Michelle Carroll, Principal
