“Bring out her best ” is a sentiment that has defined Strathcona since its beginning in 1924. It has a long-standing history of high academic achievement, exceptional care of students and a strong sense of community. Strathcona is a unique, medium-sized independent school in Melbourne’s inner east. With Prep to Year 12 for girls and a co-educational Early Learning Centre (ELC), Strathcona fosters positive attitudes towards learning in an intimate, family-oriented environment.
The School has three separate campuses, each tailored to different age groups and their needs. The Main Campus (ELC and Years 7 – 12) is located in Canterbury, and the purpose-built Junior School, is only a short walk away. Year 9 is spent at the historic Tay Creggan Campus, on the banks of the Yarra River in Hawthorn.
A new Learning Centre, incorporating a Knowledge Exchange area (including Library, IT and audio-visual facilities), a new Middle School Centre for Year 7 and 8 students and a state-of-the-art Science Centre will open in 2015.
Facilities include the Sports and Aquatic Centre, consisting of a gymnasium, heated indoor pool and training room; a specialist Senior Centre for our VCE students; and a Creative and Performing Arts Centre (CPAC), for Music, Visual Arts, Drama, Multimedia and Food Technology.
