Why Choose Mount St Benedict College?
Six Great Reasons to Choose MSB
Everyone wants their daughters to have the best education possible.
In the tradition of the Good Samaritan Sisters of the Order of St Benedict, the College offers holistic education based on Benedictine values of Pax, Hospitality and Stewardship.
MSB inspires young women and transforms the future.
1. Leaders in 21st century thinking
2. Academic Excellence
If students need additional support or extension, our Gifted and Talented and Learning Support staff provide individualised attention. As an academically non-selective school, in the 2017 HSC the College was ranked as the 8th best performing Catholic girls’ school in NSW and 81st overall in NSW.
3. Focus on girls' wellbeing
There are also dedicated school counsellors and learning support teachers. We have structures and opportunities for students to be involved from the peer support of small tutor groups to Student Representative Council and portfolio responsibilities. Individual effort is recognised through the merit system.
4. Commitment to spirituality and social justice
Through the Religious Education program, liturgical celebrations, prayer, Reflection Days and Outreach Days students are encouraged to participate and are challenged to respond through action within the College community, the Church and the wider community.
5. Diverse co-curricular program
6. Vibrant community
In addition, many of our ex-students return to the College to help with coaching sporting and debating teams, mentoring younger students, providing music tuition and supporting a range of social justice initiatives. In addition, we work closely with our mission partners and our network of Good Samaritan schools.
