"At Loreto College, students are empowered to be informed and confident young women of faith and courage in a culture that inspires educational and personal excellence."

As Principal of Loreto Coorparoo, I sincerely welcome you to our website. This website provides a snapshot of a Loreto education; what we do every day to support our students to “have the courage to be themselves”.

Founded in 1928 by the IBVM sisters, a Loreto Coorparoo education is underpinned by the gospel values and Mary Ward’s vision for the education of girls. This vision sees an emphasis on high standards, the pursuit of personal excellence and a holistic approach. It is supported by the five values of freedom, justice, sincerity, verity and felicity.

Loreto Coorparoo is home to 880 students and offers a diverse and challenging curriculum enhanced with a multitude of extra-curricular sporting, cultural and social justice activities. Our students are empowered to be informed and confident young women of faith and courage in a culture that inspires educational and personal excellence.

To gain a real sense of the true essence of our school, I encourage you to contact our Enrolments department to arrange a tour.

In conclusion, I invite families to view the following clip from Alliance of Girls Schools Australia, to get the facts about why a girls’ school is such a fantastic educational choice for your daughter:

Why should you choose Loreto, an Independent Catholic Girls School?
