St Clare’s College has celebrated over 50 years of continuous education to the Canberra community (established in 1965). The reason for its establishment in the beginning is now further enhanced with contemporary research supporting the many benefits of girls being educated in a girls’ only school.
St Clare’s has a proud history of success in many fields of endeavour across academic, cultural, sporting and extra-curricular activities. This is due to the support of parents and staff working collaboratively to provide the opportunities for a vibrant and willing student body to participate in the many fields of endeavour available today. St Clare’s College is a welcoming school and open to all.
Students new to St Clare’s quickly feel the unique spirit that envelops our school community. This sense of belonging translates into pride – pride in themselves and pride in being a St Clare’s girl.
This means that students genuinely enjoy not only their own success, but the success of their peers. This atmosphere of mutual respect between staff and students underpins what we stand for at St Clare’s College.
St Clare’s College is a Catholic school and as such have a long tradition of taking our students on retreat in order to deepen their relationship with God.
St Clare’s College students participate in Camp and Retreat programs to develop in students a sense of social integration and self reliance, provide opportunities for outdoor recreational experiences and develop in students a spiritual appreciation through participation in the liturgical dimension of the Camp or Retreat Program.
As part of their pastoral care program for students, Catholic Schools have access to a Student and Family Counselling service provided by CatholicCare Canberra & Goulburn (CCG). CCG are contracted by Catholic Education and Congregational Schools to provide a counselling service to students and their families. There is no fee to access this service.
