We chose St Albert’s because when we were looking at schools, we felt like the staff really listened to what we wanted for our children, and about the individual education needs of every child. Our son Alec was diagnosed with speech and development issues, and needed a tailored program that included working with external therapists. The staff have embraced this, even getting extra training to make the program as effective as possible. Alec’s progress has been amazing, and we are so grateful to St Albert’s for what they have done to make this work for our son.

Not being of the Catholic faith myself, I chose St Albert’s for the smaller class sizes and the increased one to one tuition my daughters would receive.
Straight away we found the school culture to be so welcoming. My daughters can be themselves and don't have to compete for a spot in a “cool crowd”. Their individuality is celebrated and their friendships span across year levels, genders and cultures.
The depth and breadth of teaching skill of staff and their level of commitment to helping students learn and get the foundations of literacy and numeracy down pat is outstanding.
St Albert’s also has a growing focus on children’s social and emotional well-being. Our daughters are now literate in mental health concepts and well-being strategies – at ages 6 and 8! These are the skills they will carry with them into adolescence and adulthood. We feel that St Albert’s is now leading the way in its commitment to developing student’s emotional intelligence using a range of evidence-based programs that permeate all aspects of student’s learning.
I encourage any parent of a toddler to come and watch the reception teachers in action at St Albert’s – you will be blown away!
