Choosing the right education for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
As parents, carers or grandparents you have a choice - and the right - to offer your child the best education available.
The Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle proudly hosts some of the best schools in Newcastle, Maitland, the Hunter and Upper Hunter, Lake Macquarie and Manning regions.
Catholic schools offer a unique educational experience which forms the child or young person as a person of integrity, compassion, faith and wisdom. Catholic schools also work closely with their local parish to enhance in students a capacity to make sense of their world, to make judgements and to recognise the uniqueness of others within a faith community.
Each school has a supportive community of teachers, parents, carers, P&F committees, clergy, parishioners and support staff who work together to focus on students; encouraging success, promoting discipline, supporting creativity and instilling compassion. This means that Catholic schools do not just teach religious studies, they seek to develop spirit, mind, body and character and cultivate Gospel values that support lives filled with joy, endeavour and hope in the future.
St Catherine’s has a commitment to focusing on each individual child’s ability, offering a unique array of educational, creative, sporting and formation opportunities for students.
Finally, Catholic schools offer peace of mind to parents, knowing they’ve made the right choice and the best investment for their child’s future. It is because of this and the many opportunities available to students, that we believe choosing a Catholic education is the right choice to make.
St Catherine’s Catholic College offers a unique educational experience for students from Kindergarten to Year 12, allowing students to complete both primary and secondary education at the one campus. This gives students a strong foundation for relationships with teachers, families and students of all ages.

Our students have achieved outstanding Creative and Performing Arts success, including nominations for OnStage and ArtExpress, as well as consistent Band 6 results across all courses.
