St Aloysius College

St Aloysius College has been educating girls in the heart of the city of Adelaide since 1880. The images on this website capture the vibrant and creative environment in which our current students learn and grow into confident and capable young women.

Our academic programs offer a wide range of subjects to enable all students to pursue their passions. With an outstanding record of tertiary entrance, we are proud of the many inspiring role models, including our outstanding teaching staff, who encourage all students to strive for excellence in their chosen fields.

The College’s curriculum extension programs enable students to explore a range of activities outside the classroom. As a Mercy school, a commitment to justice underpins all that we do, and our Justice and Mercy group, along with the Mercy in Action Passport (MiAP), make an awareness of social issues and a sense of agency in addressing these part of every student’s education. A thriving sports program and an active Outdoor Education platform, including the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme, make SAC an exciting and engaging school.

The international dimension of an education at St Aloysius College is central to our success. We welcome international students from many countries to complete their studies in Adelaide. We also offer exchanges and study tours to many countries, supported by an excellent languages program.

In the spirit of Mercy hospitality, we hope that once you have explored this website you will be inspired to visit St Aloysius College and experience for yourself the warm welcome that is so central to our culture.

(The donations amount includes money raised since 2015).


As well as raising money the students also collect and generously deliver Easter Eggs each year to number of Catholic Charities agencies including:  Catherine House and Centacare. 

Easter Eggs

Happily this Easter 2021 we were so pleased the annual Easter Egg collection and distribution was able to go ahead. A big thankyou to St Aloysius College's year 10 students who collected this fantastic array of Easter Eggs for Centacare Catholic Family Services domestic violence clients. Every year the donations just get bigger! Well done everyone with special thanks to Elizabeth Boylan from SAC. Well done girls! 

Walk a Mile
Every year a group of students from SAC's Justice and Mercy (JAM) group participate in the Hutt St Centre’s Walk A Mile Campaign. Even during 2020, when the event itself was cancelled due to Covid-19, their dedicated students participated in their own version of the event. Supporting the Hutt St Centre through Walk a Mile is a longstanding tradition at St Aloysius College.
