At St Scholastica’s College, we strive to provide the very best learning opportunities. We recognise that education is a holistic process that supports the intellectual, creative, physical and emotional development of students. We provide a broad-based curriculum, which ensures a solid grounding in a wide range of subjects in addition to allowing students to pursue particular areas of interest and expertise.
The College follows the NSW curriculum of study set by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA, formerly BOSTES). The State sets the curriculum but we apply nuance and refinement to create the best academic opportunity for each student, irrespective of academic ability. Our staff work to maximise students’ personal and academic achievements as they progress to a post-school life in tertiary studies, technical or further education or employment.
As a Catholic School, the study of Religious Education is compulsory in all years. The foundations of the College exist within the parable of the Good Samaritan and the strength of the Benedictine tradition.
Our aim is to develop young women with a moral compass, well qualified and equipped to make their way in the world. We do this by instilling a love of learning, an inquiring mind and an entrepreneurial spirit. Students also benefit from exposure to a diverse school community featuring international, Indigenous and boarding students from a wide variety of backgrounds.
Our co-curricular activities offer students the opportunity to indulge a passion, learn new skills, develop their leadership abilities or provide service to the College and the community. We offer an extensive co-curricular program which includes Sport, the Duke of Edinburgh program, Debating, Tournament of the Minds, Drama and Music.
