St Benedict’s Catholic College

Our College

St. Benedict’s Catholic College is a systemic co-educational high school operating in the Western Macarthur to serve the Parishes of Oran Park, Camden, Picton and The Oaks. We are a 6 stream Year 7 - 12 comprehensive high school and have 950 students in Years 7-12 in 2019.

The College takes its inspiration from St. Benedict of Nursia, the patron saint of students and the father of western monasticism. Set in a semi-rural environment on 8ha, the College offers a range of subjects from Stages 4-6 and extra curricula activities including sporting and cultural representative pathways through the Diocese of Wollongong and the Macarthur Independent Schools Association (MISA). In the Benedictine tradition, we aim to develop a love of learning and a love of God in a pastorally caring environment where “the strong have something to strive for and the poor have nothing to run from Benedictine education sets its sights on the transformation of the human mind and heart. Benedictine education stresses the formation of the whole person rather than the intellect alone.
