About Sydney Catholic Schools

Catholic schools have been delivering excellence in education to Sydney school students for 200 years. Sydney Catholic Schools (SCS) continues to be a thriving and growing contemporary educational community with 150 schools, more than 71,000 students, 10,000 staff and a large alumni community.

About the school

At All Saints Catholic College, we are committed to delivering a world class curriculum by strengthening, enhancing and supporting our student experience across their K-12 learning path. As we continue to deliver excellence in teaching and learning, our students live a journey at ‘One School’ across a ‘Dual Campus’ as ‘One Community’. They experience alignment of their entire learning journey from K–12 in a contemporary school environment.  We are focused on the development of the whole person: spiritually, academically, socially and physically.

The charisms of our founders continue to be central to the values of our college today. The commitment to finding Christ in every person allows us to focus on the positives that abound in every student. Together with the Parish of All Saints Catholic Liverpool, staff and students work closely together to nurture the spiritual and faith development of each child.
