We offer Scholarships to students who will be enrolling in Prep or Year 7. The purpose of the Scholarships is to support parents and guardians of students with a significant hearing loss with the cost of tuition. The Scholarships are open to students who would benefit from an education at St Mary's College, are interested in enrolling in any campus, with value dependent on individual financial circumstances. For further information click here.
Unfortunately we are currently unable to offer tours of our school due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. To support families in considering St Mary’s College for their 2021 prep or 2022 year 7 child, we encourage you to view the videos from the Campuses page to introduce you to the great community feel and the attention to learning, happiness and achievement we provide all of our children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
If you would like to have more information or a personal conversation about St Mary’s College and your child, please contact one of our Deputy Principals using the Contact Us page.
