Stella Maris College is a school of Good Samaritan Education established in 1931 in the Benedictine tradition. The policies of the College give expression to its values and ethos and/or reflect the legal requirements of a school registered and accredited by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA).
In accepting a child for enrolment, Stella Maris makes a commitment to nurture the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional growth of that child, laying a firm foundation for life-long learning and encouraging the development of a strong personal ethic. Historically, the Good Samaritan Sisters desired to make a high quality education accessible to all; therefore, honouring the Good Samaritan ethos, the College is accepting of families from all social, cultural and faith backgrounds, recognising their unique dignity.
Consideration for enrolment is given to
- Students from local Catholic primary schools
- Sisters of students already at the College
- Daughters and grand daughters of former students
- Students who are committed to the Catholic faith
- Applications thereafter according to date of registration
