The unique benefits of a Catholic Education

Welcoming school communities

Our 80 caring schools are nurturing communities where students and their families are warmly welcomed. As children grow in faith and learning, they develop a strong sense of belonging that supports wellbeing and connection.


Skilled and caring teachers

Our teachers bring learning to life with passion and creativity. They help students thrive and grow academically and socially through fostering their curiosity and individual talents in partnership with families.


High quality affordable education

We’re committed to keeping school fees as low as possible, with options to support every family to access a Catholic education in the Diocese of Parramatta. No child will be refused enrolment due to a family's inability to pay school fees.
