Catholic Ladies’ College (CLC), a Christ-centred community established by the Sisters of Charity in 1902, retains its strong commitment to the tradition and heritage of educating young women of faith, integrity, individuality and compassion in strong partnership with parents. At CLC the spiritual meets the intellectual, the creative sits alongside the critical, all disciplines, gifts and talents are celebrated equally but paramount to all this is the reality that learning here takes place within a collective sphere of mutual support and a deep desire to achieve at a personal best level. The College’s excellent academic results are supported by a progressive commitment to individual pastoral care and enhanced by a technology-rich and modern learning environment. The classrooms continue to be centres of twenty-first century learning, where technology enhances the teaching and learning process; within this thinking, CLC inspires a commitment that learning is both personalised and life-long. Innovation is both a traditional aspect and a modern feature of CLC. Innovation is witnessed in CLC’s use of technology, its exciting gender-encapsulating curriculum and its global relevant programs – including the connections with literary, cultural and global tours and shared experiences with schools throughout Asia and Europe; additionally, innovation is also witnessed in the progressive pastoral, cultural and religious programs which continue to lead female Catholic education. As a centre of holistic education, CLC recognises both the worth and personal fulfilment of the pursuit of activities which enhance and support all learning within the College. The College has highly regarded co-curricular programs which provide all students with many opportunities to be involved in a myriad of co-curricular activities, including student leadership, community service, social justice programs, performing and visual art pursuits, academic quests and sporting endeavours. The College offers students various pathways in the senior years, including over 40 VCE and VET subjects and a dynamic VCAL program. Teaching and specialist staff, provide knowledge and expertise, which ensure all student needs are addressed.
