Welcome to Loreto College Marryatville, South Australia’s only all-girls independent Catholic day and boarding school, catering for students from Early Learning to Year 12. The College was established in 1905 and is set on beautiful heritage grounds.
Being one of seven Australian Loreto Schools united by the vision of Mary Ward, the College prides itself on the development of confident, articulate, and courageous girls and young women who have the social consciousness to make a difference to our world.
A Loreto education is built from a 400-year-old foundation that articulates the importance of educating girls and young women so that they will actively take a place in society and influence their world through a set of strong values and beliefs. In delivering this view, Loreto College Marryatville provides girls with a well-rounded education where students are presented with a broad range of opportunities and given the support and encouragement needed so that they become confident and engaged learners.
Loreto has a strong reputation as an outstanding girls' school due to our history of academic and sporting success. Loreto girls have a long and steady tradition of State and National achievement in a range of curriculum areas producing two of South Australia’s Rhodes Scholars in the last three years. Likewise, our girls have represented Loreto at State and National level in a wide variety of individual and team sports. This success is made possible by our dedicated staff who work with the girls in achieving their personal best.
Our curriculum from Reception to Year 10 is based on the International Baccalaureate programme which focusses on an inquiry model of learning, placing the student in the centre of all learning experiences. In Years 11 and 12 the girls return to the SACE curriculum, choosing from a wide variety of subjects. In conjunction with these learning frameworks is our focus on creating a learning environment that is specific to the developmental needs of girls.
We invite you to visit Loreto College, take a tour of our school, and meet the students, teachers, and community that make our school one of the top private girls’ schools in Adelaide.
