Excellence in education
Catholic schools have a history of academic excellence and as providers of quality, Christ-centred and child-focused education, our schools and colleges enable students to gain confidence in their abilities and to achieve to their unique potential. Catholic schools are among the top performing schools in the state each year in the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) examinations.
Grow, belong and be safe
Our schools and colleges are inclusive and supportive learning environments where diversity is celebrated, and students are encouraged to discover their abilities and explore their potential. We recognise the family as each child’s most influential educator and actively partner with parents and caregivers, encouraging open communications and supportive learning environments.
Focus on affordability
Almost 1 in 5 school-aged children in WA benefits from our inclusive and accessible education.
Catholic schools recognise the significant contribution families make to the cost of educating their children. In acknowledging the challenges facing some families, Catholic schools are focused on minimising school fees, offering financial support to those in need, and providing sibling discounts and scholarships.
Diversity in learning
Catholic schools promote education for all – celebrating the diversity and achievements of every student and encouraging them to discover their abilities and reach their full potential.
