Our teachers embrace the latest educational research balancing clear instruction with engagement. They help each girl to learn in the way that is right for her, giving her the academic rigour she needs and the tools she can use to flourish at school. We offer a broad, differentiated curriculum with a focus on meeting individual student needs, plus other forms of enrichment, extension and the opportunity for acceleration.
Our wellbeing program is a vital part of our approach to learning. At St Catherine's it means your daughter can rebound from adversity, use perseverance when challenged and have optimism for the future. We focus on building four key areas: positive emotion, a resilient mindset, academic tenacity, and strong relationships. It also looks at financial literacy, goal setting, philosophical thinking and service throughout the year.
While at St Catherine’s your daughter’s study is complemented by strong cocurricular programs in sport, music, performing arts and service education. When she leaves St Catherine’s we want her to be well educated, well rounded and well balanced – ready for further study, ready for life.
St Catherine's has a variety of scholarships reflecting the academic and inclusive nature of our learning philosophies. Please visit our website to read more about our school and what we can offer your daughter.
