We strive to deliver learning, teaching and wellbeing, as one which is innovative and creative, underpinned by contemporary and relevant pedagogy. Our teachers foster an authentic and purposeful student-centred learning environment where students develop a love of learning and flourish through a culture of high expectations.
Our students are empowered to learn and achieve through high-quality pedagogical practices, developing the creative and critical thinking skills required to engage in and make meaningful contributions to our world. We aim to give our students the very best opportunity to be successful lifelong learners and agents of change, in the process challenging and inspiring them to reach the plan God has for them.
The Practice Principles (Grey Ring) articulate how our teachers deliver the curriculum and engage students in their learning. Each Principle is supported by a theory of action that describes how the work of our teachers generates improved student learning over time.
The Practice Principles support the development of a shared language for teaching and learning at St Benedict’s and help us to articulate what teaching and learning excellence looks like.
St Benedict’s Catholic College delivers a curriculum tailored specifically to educate young men and women. It motivates our students to discover what’s possible when they look within and strive for improvement.
The Mission and Vision of Religious Education in the Diocese of Wollongong sees Catholic schools as being called to be real and living expressions of the church’s pastoral mission in the world. As centres of ‘the New Evangelisation’ they proclaim and give witness to a living encounter with Christ.
Enrolments & Fees
Great results start with quality teaching from the time our students enter the College. The High Performance journey begins in Year 7. Students who are highly capable have a right to rigorous, relevant and engaging learning activities that address their individual learning needs.
Diverse Learning Needs
St Benedict’s Catholic College recognises the diverse learning needs of our students, which is demonstrated through the College’s ongoing commitment to assist and support students with additional educational needs within an inclusive setting.
Bring your own Designated Device, or BYODD, is a technical trend in education that allows users to bring their own personal technology devices into the classroom. St Benedict’s Catholic College believes that allowing families to purchase their own device fosters a greater sense of ownership and connection between the student and their device. Bringing a fully charged approved device to school every day is a condition of enrolment.
