Choosing a School

Home > Our Schools > Choosing a School  

Catholic schools have a commitment to excellence and equity with a shared partnership between Catholic Education Melbourne, Catholic schools, parents, parishes and religious institutes in the important task of educating students.


A distinctive mark of Catholic schools is the emphasis on community – principals, teachers, staff and parents working together and with the wider community to educate and develop the whole child: emotionally, academically, physically, socially, and spiritually. Each Catholic school has the flexibility to tailor its programs to meet the individual needs of students and its local parish and communities.

By choosing a Catholic school, your child will be nurtured in an environment which engages with the Gospel teachings. Catholic schools recognise that every child is special and unique and make every effort to cater for your child’s individual learning needs.

We wish you and your family well as you begin or continue this journey in Catholic education. We encourage you to be active partners with the school in your child’s education and to involve yourself in the school community, where you are now a valued member.
