At Loreto there is a tangible sense of being somewhere special where individuals are nurtured, loved and respected. The five essential elements of a Loreto education are: freedom; justice; sincerity; verity; and felicity. These values underpin the College’s educational framework and thus provide the defining mission of the community.

Loreto students are encouraged to involve themselves as fully as possible in all aspects of College life. Both the curricular and co-curricular programs are designed to engage and extend them in their thinking and in their learning, thus helping them to grow in their maturity and development.

The co-curricular program at Loreto is comprehensive and includes an extensive range of sports; plentiful social justice and outreach opportunities; extensive cultural programs and pursuits; leadership training and development; international immersion and cultural exchange trips; choirs, ensembles, musical and stage productions; performing arts tours; public speaking and debating; and numerous other special interest clubs and activities.

We create a breadth of opportunities for young women to explore their potential, including their leadership capacity. We acknowledge the importance of challenging and developing student voice and for us to provide the opportunities for students to enhance capabilities and raise awareness of social justice issues. We encourage students to deepen their personal commitment to the attitudes and values of our school, as they consider a diverse range of views and value the dignity of each human life.
