About our school

Located only 3km from the heart of the CBD in Sydney’s Inner West, our day and boarding school – affectionately known as ‘Schols’ – has been educating young women for more than 140 years. Our spiritual heart lies in seeking Christ through the Good Samaritan, Benedictine charism. It is the heart of the Good Samaritan that breathes life into the College community, creating the warmth that you feel when you walk through the gates. Academic achievement and personal growth combine in a Schols’ education to develop confident young women for a challenging world. The ‘whole’ girl – body, mind and spirit – are all nourished and students are encouraged, through their faith, to search for meaning and to acquire a sound, moral basis for life. Our innovative and ambitious STEM programs spark imagination and creativity. For instance, our Years 9 and 10 students have opportunities to work with engineers building a project from concept to fruition, driving a practical interest in STEM studies; senior students may participate in the Stage 6 Engineering and Software Design STEM Program at UTS. We have accelerated classes in Mathematics (Years 9 – 11) and Studies of Religion II; work with the local primary school delivering a creative catechist program and an Arts-focused Visual Arts Program. In 2020, one student’s Extension 2 English work was selected for publication in the Young Writers Showcase 2020, an annual publication of the top HSC Extension 2 English works. Our boarding community is vibrant and inclusive. For 80 girls in Years 7 to 12, the boarding school is large enough to be interesting and diverse, yet contained enough to be inclusive, warm and personal. In a beautiful and peaceful landscape, boarding offers wonderful experiences.
