Welcome to the Santa Maria College
We are proud of our Catholic tradition and our Mercy heritage which form our values. These values are central to all we do. We live out our faith and try to make a difference in the world through service to others.
Our beautiful College has wonderful learning spaces, magnificent grounds and much history created by the Sisters of Mercy. We have educated many generations of outstanding women who are empowered and compassionate and have taken on diverse roles upon graduation.
We invite you to learn more about Santa Maria College through our website and encourage you to join us on a tour.
Santa Maria College is nestled in picturesque gardens overlooking the Swan River in Attadale, Western Australia and is a Years 5 – 12 Catholic school for girls, both day and boarding with 1300 students including 152 boarders. Santa Maria offers a quality education inspired by Jesus Christ and the vision of Catherine McAuley.
The vision of Catherine McAuley, foundress of the Sisters of the Mercy, led to the founding of the College in 1938. Since then the Mercy tradition has enabled Santa Maria girls to thrive at school and beyond. We believe that our values, Hospitality, Compassion, Justice, Service and Excellence, reflect not only the principles of our faith but the values wider society holds dear.
