St Aloysius College has been a leader in girls’ education in South Australia since 1880. Many of the College’s graduates have broken new ground for women in society, both locally and globally.

Our academic programs offer a wide range of subjects to enable all students to pursue their passions. With an outstanding record of tertiary entrance, we are proud of the many inspiring role models, including our talented teaching staff, who encourage all students to strive for excellence in their chosen fields.

The College’s curriculum extension programs enable students to explore a range of activities outside the classroom. As a Mercy school, a commitment to justice underpins all that we do, and our Justice and Mercy group, along with the Mercy Matters program, make an awareness of social issues and a sense of agency in addressing these part of every student’s education. A thriving sports program and an active Outdoor Education platform, including the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, make SAC an exciting and engaging school.

The international dimension of an education at St Aloysius College is central to our success. We welcome international students from many countries to complete their studies in Adelaide. We also offer exchanges and study tours to many countries, supported by an excellent languages program.
