Loreto College Coorparoo is a Catholic Secondary School for girls within the Archdiocese of Brisbane. It is one of a network of more than 150 Mary Ward schools around the world, seven of which are located throughout Australia. We have 700 students from Years 8 to 12.
At Loreto our vision is to offer a Catholic education which liberates, empowers and motivates students to use their individual gifts with confidence, creativity and generosity in loving and responsible service.
oreto’s teachers teach from the heart. They are highly skilled, experienced and dedicated professionals who actively seek to acknowledge and celebrate the God given gifts of each learner. They seek to empower and liberate their students through an understanding and acceptance of self and others: “learning about and from the heart”.
Loreto promotes this love of learning: “learning at the heart” through the lens of the five essential elements of a Mary Ward education: Freedom, Justice, Sincerity, Verity and Felicity.
