Schools in Mercy Tradition


St Saviours College Toowoomba

St Saviour's College is a Catholic day and boarding school for young women in Years 7 to 12.

Located centrally within Toowoomba City, SSC offers students a comprehensive curriculum with a commitment to caring and quality relationships. Established in 1873, our community remembers and esteems the traditions of the Sisters of Mercy and the work of their founder, Catherine McAuley, whose vision was to teach girls their value and worth. St Saviour's aims to educate students' hearts, minds and spirits. These are nourished through:

  • life-giving rituals and an awareness of what it means to be human in all its variety.
  • pastoral care that assists students to get to know themselves more and invites them to develop a sense of belonging to our community.
  • innovative academic pathways enabling all young women to achieve successful outcomes by recognising and developing their talents.

The educational experiences offered are holistic and designed to be values-based and life-giving. Each student is provided with opportunities to achieve to her potential and to be women of integrity.

Our community provides a unique caring and supportive environment where the care of each individual student is of paramount importance. This is fostered by our Pastoral Care Program which provides a foundation for the nurturing and growth of each student.

A core value of the College is respect, and our goal is to develop young women who respect themselves, others, God and the environment. The girls are therefore encouraged and provided with the skills to be responsible decision makers, accepting the consequences of their actions.
