Welcome to Santa Sabina College. We are a Catholic Dominican P-12 school located in the diverse, multicultural Inner West of Sydney.
Established in 1894 by a group of Dominican Sisters, Santa Sabina College nurtures intellectual curiosity, love of learning, and education for justice, inspired by gospel values. The Dominican motto of ‘Veritas’ is part of our 800 year old heritage, shared with Dominican schools around the world. We are an IB World School, educating students to achieve personal excellence, act with justice and compassion, and embrace the future with an optimistic global vision.
As a P-12 College we benefit from the continuity of approaches to learning from the early years to Year 12. Inquiry learning in a student-centred learning environment characterises each stage of the learning journey. Our early education centre, Mary Bailey House, embeds the principles of inquiry learning through the Reggio Emilia program. On the P-4 Primary Campus teaching is via the Primary Years Programme (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate. Inquiry is at the core of the PYP, and is therefore closely aligned with traditional Dominican approaches to education. Years 5 and 6 students learn within Gioia House on our Secondary Campus. In Gioia House primary specialists teach core subjects while secondary teachers provide subject-specific expertise. The students of Years 7 to 12 are educated to become intelligent, creative and confident, full of courage and compassion to lead to a better world.
The pastoral care of our students is integral to our approaches to teaching and learning.
The structures and processes we employ at different stages of a student’s education share common principles: respectful relations, the dignity of the individual, compassionate understanding. We encourage students to make good choices, and support them when they don’t. Our aim is always to work with students and families in a spirit of community. The emotional, social and spiritual growth of students is critical to their present and future lives. It cannot be an afterthought to academic achievement. 
Learning beyond ‘The Boulevarde’ is enabled through a rich variety of educational experiences. Students participate in retreats, outdoor education, curricular and co-curricular programs at our Tallong campus in the Southern Highlands. In the secondary years, students are encouraged to participate in immersion experiences to Central Australia, and to South Africa to deepen their understanding of global interconnectedness. These experiences are part of the fabric of life at Santa Sabina. 
The significant sporting and co-curricular life of the College ensure that education is holistic and inclusive of a wide variety of student interests and abilities. Music education P-12 is designed to maximise students’ opportunities for authentic performances in a range of contexts. 
When your child enrols at Santa Sabina College, your family becomes part of the community. We welcome parent involvement in the life of the College and witness its benefits every day. Our ex-student community is active, involved and committed to both the legacy and the future of the College. Our Dominican Sisters have a continuing presence on our campuses, and offer pastoral support to families, as well as to students.
We invite you to join us in ‘this place’ that is so special to generations of families.
