Our School


Principal talking with students

St Mary's College is a Catholic educational community for students in Prep to Year 12 who have a significant hearing loss. We follow the charism of the Dominican tradition and we welcome students from all faiths. In the spirit of providing an educational experience in genuinely inclusive environments, St Mary's College students are members of two school communities – St Mary's College and that of our partner schools. Students develop sound communicative abilities and the critical thinking skills required for success as global citizens, whilst seamlessly receiving exceptional, evidenced-based innovation in deaf education. Students at each campus are able to access the breadth of curriculum offered through our partner schools whilst accessing interventions and supports specific to their needs through St Mary’s College staff based at each campus as needed. Our aim is to foster compassionate, empowered, effective communicators nurtured through the spirit of our community and the values of the Dominican pillars. 

It is with great pride that I invite you to explore our website and encourage you to discover how St Mary’s College for the deaf can realise your child’s potential.
