Sydney Catholic Schools is the system of 150 Catholic primary and secondary schools operating across the Archdiocese of Sydney providing more than 70,000 students with a high-quality, low fee Catholic education.

We consider our local parishes to be the cornerstone of our local communities, which is why each parish has access to proud and affordable local Catholic schools which lay the foundation on which to build an even stronger future for our faith.

Our dedicated and hard-working educators deliver a strong faith-based education, catering for students with all interests and abilities through programs such as the Newman Selective Gifted Education Program and CaSPA for the performing arts, and our vocational education offerings.

It is also our commitment to make sure that every student feels welcome at school and has the support to thrive academically and socially.

Catholic schools have a unique role in the evangelising and educating mission of the Church. The Archbishop’s Charter for Catholic Schools sets out the purpose and mission of Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Sydney.
