Stella Maris College is an independent girls' Catholic College founded in 1931 by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan in the Benedictine tradition. Stella Maris College prides themselves on the care and development of young women who through living the Benedictine values, will make a significant and positive difference to our world. All that we do is based on our values: compassion, justice, balance, hospitality and wise stewardship.
Stella Maris College endeavours to give our students strong academic foundations and values throughout their lives. We offer stimulating and challenging experiences to students during their time at Stella Maris College, while they are assisted in their preparation to meet, with confidence, the demands of post-college education and employment.
Stella Maris College has a well-earned reputation for having an innovative, flexible and diverse curriculum. To assist each girl to seek a balanced and individually suited academic program, Stella Maris College provides a broad curriculum including a range of VET courses. There is a strong emphasis on participating in the Gifted and Talented program which includes a Writerís Group, Maths Challenge and Science IQ Quiz Program, Knox da Vinci Decathlon, Tournament of Minds and Philosothon.
All students at Stella Maris College have the opportunity to participate in a range of academic, sporting, social justice and cultural pursuits. Girls are encouraged to participate in a wide range of sporting activities including water polo, soccer, netball and surfing, as well as having opportunities to participate in our very successful choir, dance, drama ensemble programs and productions. Our Duke of Edinburgh program has a high participation level from our enthusiastic students.
