Our Ethos

Learning excellence, centred on our Catholic faith, personal growth, service to others and strong academic success.

Sancta Maria College is a co-educational, Year 7–13, State Integrated Catholic College.

While we have a focus on academic excellence, quality opportunities and strong performance in cultural and sporting activities, it is our Special Character that sets us apart.

Our Special Character is based on the values and the teachings of the Catholic Church. All students receive religious instruction as a component of the curriculum, and their development as young people with sound values and a genuine care for others is a priority for the school.

This focus is reflected in our students’ respect and concern for others as they go about discovering and developing their talents every day.
