I am proud to warmly welcome you to St Leo’s Catholic College, Wahroonga.

At St Leo’s, we are committed to forming confident, competent Catholic-valued young women and men of conscience, aiming to help students find their passion and develop their talents into greatness.We equip our students with the skills and attitudes to be future leaders in their fields, honouring God in what they do and how they do it. 

To achieve this, we aim to devlop the whole person by providing broad educational experiences that promote the spiritual, academic, social/emotional, cultural, physical and environmental growth of our students – what we call our Growth Domain areas. By developing real-world, transferrable skills, our students graduate as well-rounded individuals ready to successfully negotiate the challenges of the future. We strive to ensure each student develops to be the best they can be.

St Leo’s is part of the Catholic Schools Broken Bay system of schools and draws upon this system for expertise and support.

I invite you to visit us at our Open Day held in March, or to arrange a tour to see the wealth of opportunities available at St Leo’s and experience the warmth and caring of our community for yourself.
