    Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Melbourne is a leading provider of school education, representing the third largest Catholic diocese in the world.  Our schools are committed to our students' success: to the achievement of their full potential; to inspiring in them a life-long love of learning; and to equipping them to engage in a full and fulfilling life and to make their unique contribution to society.

    our schools data   


    Catholic education enrolments continued to grow in Victoria. Projected enrolment growth for the next 10 years suggests a substantial demand by Catholic families for a Catholic education for their children. The upward trend shows that parents continue to have faith in Catholic schools. This is testament to the dedication and hard work of our principals, teachers and religious communities. We are committed to working with local communities, including parishes, to ensure parents who desire a Catholic education for their children are not disadvantaged.

    Class size data 


    Catholic schools continue to outperform all Victorian schools in terms of the percentage of students at or above the national minimum standard for all year levels and domains. Catholic school students improved in Year 3 for Reading, Spelling and Grammar/ Punctuation and in Year 9 numeracy.
