St Catherine's offers a variety of scholarships reflecting the academic and inclusive nature of our learning philosophies.

All girls have special qualities but we know some are already achieving at high academic levels or have a serious talent for performance, sport or music.  If your daughter is one of these girls, St Catherine's offers a broad range of scholarships which could allow her to develop her talent further while enjoying all our school has to offer. If you are from regional or Indigenous Australia, or descended from an Old Girl of the school, we have something for you too.
