St Catherine’s School aspires to graduating intellectually and emotionally agile young women, fully prepared to navigate their futures across new and emerging industries, thrive within global and digital communities, persevere during adversity and remain authentic and fearless in all they pursue.
St Catherine’s is a vibrant, close-knit community where students, teachers and parents share in the journey of learning.
Centred on children’s innate curiosity, St Catherine’s School’s Early Learning Centre has a strong educational program that fosters life-long learners, exceeds the national quality standard and is recognised as one of Melbourne’s leading ELCs.
Our goal is to ensure all our students learn to be their best within a setting that encourages a high level of engagement, understanding, collaboration and reflection.
St Catherine’s empowers and nurtures independent and thoughtful young women who are confident of their ability to make a difference in a changing world. They truly are women of the future, ready to embrace all that life offers.
At St Catherine’s, we are committed to ensuring each student is able to enquire deeply, respond positively to challenge and change and, on departing the Heyington Gates, is ready to lead in rich and meaningful ways.
Boarding at St Catherine’s School provides our girls with a safe and comfortable living environment. They have the opportunity to make friends with girls from across Australia and around the world. Boarders are provided the freedom to socialise with friends and to explore Melbourne on organised weekend activities, as well as the opportunity to develop positive study habits and importantly, to have a lot of fun!
Our School has a wonderful history and many stories that our community is deeply connected to. As we celebrate our 125 Year Anniversary, we invite you to step back in time through some of the many stories that make up life at St Catherine’s.
St Catherine’s prides itself on being a cohesive and unique School community. Current St Catherine’s families, along with our alumni, future students, and current and past parents and staff, are all active, generous, enthusiastic and supportive members of the St Catherine’s School community.
