Our school

Fortiter, Fideliter, Feliciter: Bravely, Faithfully, Happily.

The words of our motto define Strathcona Baptist Girls Grammar and the girls and women who become part of the School community.

Together at Strathcona, we instil in our young people the skills and mindsets that enable them to grapple challenges, the self-belief and resilience to embrace new opportunities, and the confidence to pursue their passions and interests so that they can make their way bravely, faithfully and happily in a world full of possibilities.

Located in the heart of Melbourne’s inner eastern suburbs, Strathcona is situated across three campuses catering for girls and boys in ELC and girls from Prep to Year 12. Senior and Junior School campuses are located in the heart of Canterbury and the first designated campus for Year 9 girls in Australia in Tay Creggan, is situated on the banks of the Yarra River in Hawthorn, only a short train ride away from our Canterbury campuses.

With a proud history as a leading independent girls’ School, our philosophy is to encourage girls to embrace their education wholeheartedly. First class facilities, resources and technologies underpin our proven academic program which is confirmed by the exceptional student achievements each year, and supported by our outstanding academic and professional staff, who are leaders in their field.

Since 1924, Strathcona has cultivated a unique community that is warm, compassionate, welcoming and deeply connected, offering a breadth of opportunities and embracing the passions and interests of each and every student.

Onward we go: Bravely, Faithfully, Happily, Together.
