St Catherine’s teachers and mentors spend time getting to know each girl to gain a deep understanding of her talents and interests as well as areas that need strengthening. It means we can set the academic bar at the right height for each student to ensure she is constantly challenged and strives for excellence in her learning. We call this ‘Academic Challenge’, one of two core pillars that nurture each girl in her journey through the School. It is enhanced by programs such as Gifted and talented and Learning enrichment. The other foundational pillar is ‘Academic care’ which supports each girl every step of the way and features a mentoring program and our innovative positive psychology focus from Kindergarten to Year 12.
