Strategic Plan 2022 - 2025
Following extensive consultation and data analysis, the strategic plan for the next four years for Loreto College has been published. Our vision is to be an innovative and contemporary College that engages students and prioritises student agency. We are committed to following in the footsteps of Mary Ward by developing courageous students able to thrive in a changing world. The Strategic Plan framework of five Keystone Arches (symbolic of the Loreto Ballarat arches) has been created, grounded in the culture of Loreto’s mission, vision and values.
With Mother Gonzaga Barry, the founder of Loreto schools in Australia as a role model for expansion and innovative change, Loreto College Ballarat is moving courageously forward to meet the need for Catholic education in the Loreto tradition.
Loreto College is working collaboratively with accomplished planning and development consultants Urbis, to evaluate the future education landscape and develop a master plan for the current Mary’s Mount and future Cuthbert’s Road site. With a goal to use environmentally sustainable design principles the College aims to offer state-of-the-art secondary education facilities. Our design will enhance the learners’ experience by promoting engagement with the world in creative and innovative ways. The addition of a co-educational primary school, an early learning centre and a boarding school for secondary students continue to be a part of the planning process. Further consultation will take place with our community over coming months to finalise this plan.
