About our school

San Sisto College has successfully educated young women for over sixty years, inspiring them with multi-dimensional thinking skills and a desire to pursue post school options with vision and determination. This has in turn empowered our students to live the college motto “Women of integrity shaping the future”. 

With the rapid development of technology, there is a need for individuals to have a broad range of attributes such as fluidity, informed problem-solving and critical thinking skills, and adaptive reasoning abilities. In addition, new advances in the 21st century mean that many young citizens will be working in occupations in the future that do not currently exist. San Sisto College embraces agile and innovative education and pedagogical practices that equip students with contemporary skills and traits to succeed, whilst prioritising and nurturing each student’s unique learning journey. Our expert teaching team pursues leading-edge, best practice pedagogy informed by evidence-based research, and evaluates data profiles to understand student progress, growth and success. They develop strategic, carefully integrated programs to maximise learning. 

To provide progressive, real-world experiences, San Sisto College partners with leading universities and institutions, such as the University of Queensland, Monash University, Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy (QMEA), the Queensland Debating Union (QDU) and technology providers. Students at the College passionately engage with a vast array of co-curricular opportunities ranging from academic (STEM), to sporting (CaSSSA) and cultural pursuits (music, dance and drama). There are a wide range of subject choices, advanced wellness and fitness centres, and support and extension programs to enhance individual student learning. Located in the picturesque, leafy suburb of Carina and with a cohort of 900 students, the College has state of the art facilities and creative learning spaces that enhance the classroom experience and engage a variety of pedagogical strategies.
