Welcome from the Principal 


At San Sisto College, we are committed to the education of young women.  Our aim is to provide a learning environment that supports the individual student to meet the challenges of the future. With an emphasis on academic achievement, development of practical skills, promotion of community harmony and a wide co-curricular program, the college seeks to challenge each student in individual ways while fostering a strong feeling of community. The college provides an extensive curriculum which caters for the varied interests and needs of students seeking both academic and vocational outcomes with technology integrated across learning areas within the curriculum. We have adopted Dimensions of Learning as our authoritative pedagogy, and we place a high regard on learning habits that sustain our young women through life.


Students are also encouraged to participate within their community through involvement in a wide range of social justice activities.


High quality communication between parents and teachers provides a secure environment that fosters the positive development of our young women.
