Loreto Schools

Celebrating more than 115 years of education in Adelaide, Loreto College Marryatville is one of seven IBVM schools across Australia.

Our sister schools are located in New South Wales (Kirribilli and Normanhurst), Victoria (Toorak and Ballarat), Queensland (Coorparoo), and Western Australia (Nedlands).

Together with over 150 Loreto schools worldwide, we share a strong belief in the education of girls.

This extensive network brings us both strength and unity, providing a platform from which to share resources and best educational practices on a national and global scale. As a result, Loreto schools are renowned as leading independent girls’ schools, producing outstanding academic results and graduates who are sought after in employment.


Social Justice

Our Social Justice Program involves all students from Reception to Year 12 in a range of activities to benefit the lives of others. This program speaks to the heart of a Loreto education, developing empathy, compassion, personal integrity, courage, and the capacity to reflect on one’s own actions.

Many of our activities support Mary Ward International Australia (MWIA), which is the Australian and International development organisation of the Loreto Sisters. MWIA strives to make a difference in education, community development, human rights, social justice, and the empowerment of women and children. The girls are active in social justice initiatives at the College including Pink Day and Mission Day as well as fundraising and volunteering efforts for our Vietnam, Cambodia, and India pilgrimages.
