The future never stands still. Nor should your daughter.
Strathcona Girls Grammar
To become unstoppable, a girl must first be set into motion. Strathcona is the catalyst of this life-shaping momentum, ensuring each girl discovers a trajectory as unique and full of potential as she is.
Upon their respective journeys, Strathcona girls break the stereotypes of elite private education—and we’re proud of it. Action, meaning and fulfilment take precedence, and are aptly expressed in the school motto: ‘Bravely, Faithfully, Happily.’
Through a culture of academic excellence and a rich selection of co-curricular activities, girls grow and thrive. Strong, resilient, empowered—at Strathcona these are more than just words. We imbue them with impetus tied to each girl’s uniqueness and personal ambitions.
As a student’s voice and identity emerge, so does her character. And it’s here that Strathcona truly sets itself apart. A Strathcona girl is balanced in mind, body and spirit. Her robust sense of self is founded upon respect, integrity, compassion, courage and genuine community spirit. Being ready for life is not about being the best—it’s about being her best.
In essence, Strathcona affords its girls the opportunity to discover who they really are, and to pursue their life’s potential by being themselves.
Or, put another way: unstoppable girls begin at Strathcona.
Every girl at Strathcona has the opportunity to explore a range of activities beyond the curriculum, to discover her own personal brilliance in the creative arts, sport and beyond. Co-curricular activities such as debating, drama, music and competitive sports allow girls to develop personal skills such as empathy for others, communication, leadership and teamwork.
We also offer a contemporary global links program encouraging students to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others, a well-rounded outdoor education program, and a House System that provides a vibrant platform for cross-age and personal development activities.

Few decisions as a parent hold the same significance as choosing the right school for your daughter. You want your daughter to be challenged academically in a happy, safe and nurturing environment by committed educators who are experts in the learning and development of girls.
At Strathcona, supportive networks underlie every academic, co-curricular, leadership and social endeavour each girl chooses to pursue. Our aim is to afford girls the opportunity to try various activities so that each individual is able to recognise and develop her own interests and unique attributes.
Our goal is to forge innovative 21st century educational practices whilst remaining committed to proven traditional teaching. We seek to instill a love of learning in our girls and to encourage them to be agile and discerning thinkers, with the resilience and perseverance to problem solve and adapt to new challenges both within and beyond the School’s gates.
I invite you to walk through our campuses and experience the tangible, warm sense of belonging and community.
