Principal's Welcome

It is with pleasure that I welcome you to the St Aloysius College website.

St Aloysius College has been educating girls in the heart of the city of Adelaide since 1880. The images on this website capture the vibrant and creative environment in which our current students learn and grow into confident and capable young women.

Our academic programs offer a wide range of subjects to enable all students to pursue their passions. With an outstanding record of tertiary entrance, we are proud of the many inspiring role models, including our outstanding teaching staff, who encourage all students to strive for excellence in their chosen fields.

The College’s curriculum extension programs enable students to explore a range of activities outside the classroom. As a Mercy school, a commitment to justice underpins all that we do, and our Justice and Mercy group, along with the Mercy in Action Passport (MiAP), make an awareness of social issues and a sense of agency in addressing these part of every student’s education. A thriving sports program and an active Outdoor Education platform, including the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme, make SAC an exciting and engaging school.

The international dimension of an education at St Aloysius College is central to our success. We welcome international students from many countries to complete their studies in Adelaide. We also offer exchanges and study tours to many countries, supported by an excellent languages program.

In the spirit of Mercy hospitality, we hope that once you have explored this website you will be inspired to visit St Aloysius College and experience for yourself the warm welcome that is so central to our culture.
