Mount St Benedict College

Mount St Benedict College



Mount St Benedict College is a Catholic community where God is sought and found in the rich tapestry of daily life. This faith experience complements family life and parish involvement. The religious dimension of life underpins all aspects of the College community. The values articulated in our Mission statement – pax Hospitality and stewardship come to us from the tradition of the Good Samaritan Sisters of the Order of St Benedict.

Pastoral Care

There is a formal Pastoral Care Program which seeks to live out Benedictine values through both College-based and external programs. Homeroom groups are organised into eight Houses. There is a House Coordinator for each house who oversees pastoral care for the girls in their house. Each homeroom has a mix of girls from Years 7 - 12. Girls remain with their homeroom group and House Coordinator during their entire time at the College. This enables the girls to develop strong relationships with girls of different ages and with their House Coordinator. The College recognises each student's uniqueness and supports their individual needs regardless of whether they are academically gifted or require learning support. The College has specialist learning support teachers a careers advisor and two counsellors to help students. A merit system promotes positive self-esteem and operates at bronze silver and gold levels.

The comprehensive curriculum at Mount St Benedict College offers a rigorous academic program which caters for a diverse range of needs of students and allows for the more able students to engage in fulfilling and rewarding courses of study while also supporting those with special learning needs.
