Mission Statement                                                                                                  


St Scholastica’s College is a Good Samaritan Catholic Day and Boarding school.

The College is a Catholic, inclusive community with 1020 girls travelling from local communities, farming
and isolated communities across Australia and from international locations.

The school recognises and respects the dignity, individuality and culture of each person.
We provide a learning environment which nurtures independent thinkers who are life-long learners.

We strive to create a learning culture through quality teaching and learning in a broad, differentiated curriculum.

Each student has the opportunity to take responsibility for her learning in a positive environment which offers an education in faith and the freedom and responsibility to learn.

Saint Scholastica's has been at its present site for over a hundred years delivering excellence in education to young women. At the heart of our enterprise are our values: compassion, justice, wisdom, learning, harmony, balance, hospitality and stewardship.

We seek to create a world where learning is an everyday occurrence; a world that is welcoming to all regardless of race or colour; a world where care for the earth is a sustainable aspect of human existence; where individuals are able to develop a balance in their lives so they are not driven by materialism alone and where above all compassion and justice are integrated into everything we do. Thus our students will become young women who will make a positive difference in the world.
