For a mind to be free, it must be open to knowledge and learning.

At Loreto Kirribilli, we believe in education that suits the needs of the student. We are not academically selective. We encourage extension at every level of ability. A Gifted and Talented Program is offered together with specialist support for those with learning difficulties.

Mary Ward’s vision was to change education for women so that it would be "congruous with the times".

Loreto Kirribilli strives to provide for the changing needs of our students. For education to be relevant in any age, it must try to provide the best possible equipment and surroundings. In the twenty first century, this means up-to-date computer and communication facilities, laboratories, library, arts and music facilities, all housed in purpose-built buildings.
