Our Vision and Mission

"Loreto College Ballarat offers an innovative and contemporary education 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."

Loreto College is a welcoming, friendly community where each person is valued and where spirituality and learning are nurtured. With the Catholic perspective that formed the spirit and virtues of Mary Ward, young women are educated to strive for personal excellence.

Loreto College has its foundation in the gospel of Jesus Christ and is proud to be part of and contribute to the larger Catholic community. Loreto College builds on a strong and proud tradition of the education of girls, one which strives to offer "a Catholic education which liberates, empowers and motivates students to use their individual gifts with confidence, creativity and generosity in loving and responsible service."

The five pillars of Freedom, Justice, Sincerity, Verity and Felicity summarise the vision of Loreto Education. We are a Catholic School with the expressed aim of living out the values of the Gospel. We are a Loreto school in the spirit of Mary Ward that believes strongly ‘that women in time will come to do great things.'
