Welcome to Mount St Benedict College

An extraordinary school requires an extraordinary vision, one that not only pursues academic excellence, but embraces all that makes people fully alive to themselves, to each other, and to God. Such is the vision of Mount St Benedict College – a truly extraordinary school.




As you read on, I trust that you will see that vision in action across our range of academic and non-academic activities; that you will see it in our care for our students and in our programs for their personal development and enrichment.

There are many things that make Mount St Benedict a very special place. Of paramount importance to us is that we become not just an academy to attend, but a true community of learners, committed to achieving our best in all our endeavours.

That has been our commitment since Mount St Benedict College was founded in 1966 by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan, and we have continued to pride ourselves on our dedication to learning in all our activities.

The website will also give you a glimpse of our history and heritage, our beautiful site, our vibrant young women, our dedicated staff, our committed parents and our connections with former students.  It will give you some idea of the enormous range of opportunities available for students and staff.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Information on our range of Mission activities, including liturgies, retreats and Social Justice
  • Our outstanding HSC results
  • Details of our broad curriculum catering to the wide needs of our students
  • Our Houses and Pastoral care activities, including camps
  • The wide range of co-curricular activities.

Thank you for taking the time to explore,

Maria Pearson
