At Catholic Ladies' College we strive to provide a learning environment which celebrates the diversity and giftedness of all within our community. It is a learning journey which acknowledges parents as primary educators and our privileged role in partnership with them throughout their daughter's secondary education.

The faith and mission of the College provide the framework for our student wellbeing and learning and teaching programs. These programs enable us to foster a passion for lifelong learning for the holistic development of each student. The young women of this College are challenged to think as global citizens, consider the needs of those beyond their local community and to recognize the responsibilities their education provides as they take their places in work, social and family networks of the 21st century. Our girls flourish here in their time with us and beyond.
