Siena College - Camberwell VIC

Catholic 7-12 Female School

About Siena College

Siena College Camberwell's distinctive history reveals a well-planned purpose for educating young women.

Established in 1940, Siena College is a Catholic school for young women in the Dominican tradition. The Dominican sisters, who founded the college, built a school where young women could follow their academic and cultural interests, believe in their potential and become passionate life-long learners.

The tradition continues today with an education based on a deep respect for the unique qualities and gifts of each member of the community. Emphasis is placed on personal excellence in all endeavours, and we aim to equip our students to participate fully in a globalised world, to nurture their gifts and to build their self-esteem and sense of connectedness. The college is committed to contemporary learning and teaching, integrating modern technologies to make student learning exciting and interesting for young women.

We nurture an atmosphere of scholarship, intellectual enquiry and strive for excellence. Students are challenged to be creative, critical and reflective thinkers with a respect for evidence and openness of mind. With opportunities for both independent and collaborative learning across a broad curriculum, individual needs are catered for through specifically tailored support programs and enrichment opportunities for highly able students.

A comprehensive co-curricular program enables students to pursue their interests, further develop their knowledge and skills or discover hidden talents. Programs are offered in drama, music, the visual arts, leadership, social justice, debating, public speaking, learning enhancement/ extension, and sport. As a member of Girls Sport Victoria (GSV), students have the opportunity to participate socially or compete at the elite level. Cultural and language immersions are offered to China, France and Italy, as well as an Indigenous Immersion Program.

As a medium-sized school, the college is large enough to offer a broad curriculum but small enough to provide a warm, caring and respectful atmosphere.

Open mornings are held regularly from 9.30 am to 11.00 am. Register online at www.siena.vic.edu.au or by calling the college on (03) 9835 0200.
