Junior secondary students study a wide range of disciplines, some as core and others as electives. In the senior years both Queensland Studies Authority subjects and Authority Registered subjects are offered. The curriculum offerings are regularly reviewed to ensure their appropriateness and their contemporary relevance.

Student learning is enhanced through the use of a variety of teaching methods and learning experiences and the provision of a broad range of resources, including a student laptop program. Classes are not streamed and Learning Enrichment and Support staff provide extension opportunities or extra assistance for students as required. Each student is encouraged to do her best in an atmosphere where academic excellence is valued and love of learning nurtured. An Enrichment Program is provided in the senior years that complements the academic curriculum and includes elements such as community service, self-protection, work experience and work readiness.

Loreto uses pedagogies and technologies appropriate for the 21st century. We aim to maximise the flexibility and creativity of the learning environment thus ensuring Loreto students are able to participate effectively in their complex and ever changing world.
